About the Recipe

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Just before serving, reheat at 350°F until hot, about 15 minutes.

Ingredients

· 2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 8 cups)

· ⅓ cup pure maple syrup

· 2 tablespoons butter, melted

· 1 tablespoon lemon juice

· ½ teaspoon salt

· Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


STEP 2

Arrange sweet potatoes in an even layer in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Combine maple syrup, butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper in small bowl. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes; toss to coat.


STEP 3

Cover and bake the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook, stirring every 15 minutes, until tender and starting to brown, 45 to 50 minutes more.
