I substituted honey for the maple syrup and used Ghee butter w/ a little bit of nutmeg. A healthier alternative and still very yummy and easy.

Roasting sweet potatoes is even easier than boiling and mashing them. Maple syrup glaze transforms this ultra-simple dish into something sublime.

I was looking for a sweet potato recipe that was not full of marshmallows and overly sweet. This is perfect. The flavor of sweet potato comes through with a mild maple flavor. I will make this for every holiday going forward.
I made these the night before and reheated as suggested on the day of. When I heated them again, I added chopped pecans and thought they complemented the sweet potatoes well. Very similar to the glazed carrots with nuts. I 1.5x the recipe, to feed 10 and had little leftover.
Made for Thanksging yesterday and these Sweet potatoes turned out AWESOME!! Will finish them off tonight, and plan to make more tomorrow since I have extra sweet potatoes....had accidentally gotten over 5 pounds..I did double the sauce, as I had read that suggestion in the comments, and so glad I did! It really needs the extra juice. Also used orange juice instead of lemon. Added a wee bit of cinnamon. After the first 15 min covered, they really only need to cook another 25-30 min.(not the 45 in recipe..unless you want a purée..lol) They were unbelievable! Better than what I used to make with the syrupy sugary cans, adding more brown sugar, and marshmallows. That was just unhealthy! I may add walnuts though. ;)
I made these in advance for Thanksgiving and couldn't help but taste test them .. Awesome, never mind mashed sweet potatoes its going to be roasted from now on! Can't wait to serve these on Thanksgiving, I know everyone will love them !
