  • Servings 6


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (1 1/2 to 2 pounds), scrubbed well
  • 4 tablespoon (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Small sprigs fresh thyme, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise and slice each half crosswise into 1-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Melt butter in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat evenly. Add Maple Syrup; toss potatoes to coat and bring to a boil.
  • Transfer skillet to oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden, well glazed, and tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot, garnished with thyme.
