This sounds delicious! I usually add pecans or walnuts and a sprinkle of orange juice &/or rind.
Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
From EatingWell: November/December 2007
Roasting sweet potatoes is even easier than boiling and mashing them. Maple syrup glaze transforms this ultra-simple dish into something sublime.

This is one of the BEST and easiest recipes I have ever tried for Sweet Potatoes.
I used yams instead of sweet potatoes( my grocer was out of sweet potatoes) and substitutes a couple teaspoons of honey in place of some of the maple syrup (cause I ran out). THEY WERE AMAZING!!! I baked them with foil over them for a bit to cut the cooking time almost in half. Just took the foil off for the 2nd half to let the glaze cook better!!
My boyfriends favorite food are sweet potatoes ~ He LOVED them. I was very happy with the nutritional value.
This was AMAZING. I cannot believe that so little butter, no brown sugar, and a small amount of maple syrup could make sweet potatoes so sweet. This is a super change from my family's other recipe butter, sugar, and more butter and sugar; topped with more butter and sugar. :)
