I had 6 pounds of sweet potatoes so I loosely tripled the recipe. I used an oversized metal cookie sheet and it fit it all perfectly. I followed the directions exactly by starting it out covered then removing it and turning the sweet potatoes every 15 mins. They came out delicious and looked just like the picture. Great side dish and I can see there’s definite room for your personal tweaks like maybe adding cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, nuts, etc like some other reviewers mentioned!
I did, I added a little honey, maybe a little less than a teaspoon and cut one granny smith apple (1 1/2) to introduce another flavor. turned out great and my husband loved it. Thanks
I made this as a substitute for the normal canned yams at Thanksgiving. Everyone really liked them and raved about how they were sweet, but not too sweet. I kept the fact they were healthy hidden. ;)
Like many, making these forever. An excellent do ahead recipe. I add a splash of vanilla and oj instead of lemon. Can never make enough! Your oven quirks should be taken into consideration, lest you get mashed potatoes! I cover a bit longer, but crank up convection to 425 to brown w/o overcooking.
Love the maple syrup, goes really well with sweet potatoes. A perfect alternative to the oily dipping I've been accustomed to.
Absolutely amazing, totally love this recipe. I have always loved sweet potato but this takes them to a whole new level. This will now be a regular in our house!

The flavor of this dish was so poignant and delicious! Not too sweet! Not too heavy! Candied yams are one of my favs, but Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes are now my new fav! Absolutely loved this dish!!
Thanksgiving hit! These were a hit for Thanksgiving this year. So delicious but so easy. I left them in a little longer which caused them to brown a little but everyone loved them anyway. So good my mother-in-law asked me to make them for Christmas! Pros: easy
Great on the Grill These are fantastic as directed, but these can also be done on the grill for days you don't want to blast an already hot house with more heat. I make foil packets for these, divide them into servings, and toss them on the grill (cooking times vary according to temp level). The maple syrup or honey caramelizes, which is divine. I love the other variations reviewers suggested: add cinnamon, swap orange for the lemon, use honey. Fantastic alternative to heavy, cream-based mashed potatoes.
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. :)
I used olive oil instead of butter, it adds more flavor to potatoes. There is no need to cover the potatoes at the beginning of the cooking. And 50 minutes of total cooking is too much. The dish is ready within 30-40 minutes.
