SKILLET CANDIED SWEET POTATOES

by Sheryl

I love this recipe! It is so simple but dangerously good! An awesome side dish that can go with just about anything. And you don’t even have to bake it (for a change). It’s super delicious with all the melted butter and cinnamon added to the potatoes (by the way, make sure to cut the potatoes into small, not tiny but small pieces so it’ll cook all the way through). I’m making this again tonight as requested by my kids and husband. They just love this skillet sweet potatoes too much. I have been serving this for like three days in a row and tonight’s the fourth. I know! They just can’t get enough of this sweet, irresistible sweet potatoes! So, what are you waiting for? Put it on your recipe list, I’m pretty sure that your family will love this, too!

WHAT YOU NEED:

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small-to-medium pieces
6 tablespoon of butter, divided
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
Salt and Pepper to taste

HOW TO MAKE SKILLET CANDIED SWEET POTATOES

Step 1: Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the cut sweet potatoes (make sure to cut them into small pieces to cook all the way through). Saute for about 15 minutes or until fork-tender. Stir often.

Step 2: Slide the sweet potatoes to the edges of the pan, then, add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and melt. Then, add the sugar to the melted butter. Now, gently toss the potatoes so they will be coated with the sugar mixture. Adjust the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer for about 7 minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon and stir to combine. Once cooked, transfer to a serving plate and generously pour the sauce on top (all of it!). Serve and enjoy!
