Caramel Sweet Potatoes Recipe

The sauce is the star of this recipe. It really does taste like butterscotch. It is a nice side dish for poultry or ham.

10 Servings
Prep: 25 min.
Bake: 25 min.

Ingredients
6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions
• Place sweet potatoes in a Dutch oven; cover with water.
• Bring to a boil.
• Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until crisp-tender.
• Drain and transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
• Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 15 minutes.
• Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients.
• Bring to a boil; pour over sweet potatoes.
• Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until glazed, basting frequently.

Yield: 10 servings.
