TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes (2 to 2-1/4 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook sweet potatoes in boiling water until tender but still hold their shape, about 5 minutes; drain. Arrange in a buttered 2-qt. baking dish so slices overlap slightly.
  • 2. In a saucepan, combine juice, butter, sugar, syrup, peel and spices; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium; cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Drizzle over potatoes.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine oats, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.
