Sweet Potatoes for Two Recipe

I like this recipe because it can be prepared for two, or easily increased to accommodate a large gathering. The color and taste of sweet potatoes make them a must for any holiday dinner!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and peeled
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash ground nutmeg or mace


  • 1. Cut potatoes into chunks; transfer to a 1-qt. baking dish. Set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, water and salt; bring to a boil. Pour over potatoes.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until syrup thickens, basting occasionally. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Yield: 2 servings.

"Really good, but its tastes better when you use raw potates instead of cooked. I bake them in the oven for about an hour and it tastes much better than having precooked. I double the recipe everyone loves it!!"
