You can get creative with Thanksgiving side dishes, by why on Earth mess with something that is so delicious on its own? Here is my candied yam recipe for my Teacher. Foodie. Athlete. Does Thanksgiving menu!
4 pounds sweet potatoes – peeled, rinsed, and sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Salt & Pepper
1. Preheat oven to 325 (turkey cooking temperature). Spread sweet potato rounds in a single layer in baking dishes (I use the shallow aluminum ones to allow more space in my Thanksgiving oven).
2. Cut butter into pats and place one on each round. Sprinkle with brown sugar and season with salt and pepper to your liking. I love the salty and sweet flavor!
3. Bake for 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are cooked through and tender.
