Holiday Sweet Potatoes


We like simple baked sweet potatoes served with plenty of butter and maybe a dash of brown sugar or cinnamon, but if you want something just a little more fancy for Thanksgiving dinner, this recipe will do the trick!

4 T grass fed butter
1 T fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2 T brown sugar
1⁄4 t ea salt, or to taste
1⁄4 t cinnamon, or to taste
Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 1 hour Total time: 1 1⁄6 hours


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel potatoes and slice into rounds 1.5 inches thick. Rub butter onto bottom of glass baking dish. Place potato rounds evenly across dish in a single layer. Use two dishes if necessary. Melt butter and combine with lemon juice, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Drizzle evenly over potatoes. Roast, covered, for 30-40 minutes until nearly fork tender. Uncover and roast 5 – 10 minutes more until fork tender and glaze has become syrupy. Or microwave covered or 20 minutes or so, then microwave for 5 minutes more uncovered.
