Cinnamon-Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

November 21, 2010

Since we make the same traditional Sweet Potato Casserole every year on Thanksgiving, I thought I would try something a little bit different. These Cinnamon-Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes came out wonderful. My 3 kids went nuts over them and finished them off before I could get a second helping. These are super easy to prepare, much easier than the traditional casserole I usually prepare. They are a perfect side dish for your holiday (or weeknight) dinner. This recipe is a wonderful recipe for Thanksgiving, or anytime with steak, pork or chicken. If your kids don’t normally eat sweet potatoes, have them try these.

Cinnamon-Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 1 hour
Yield: 8 servings
3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place sweet potatoes , overlapping slightly in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and orange zest. Cook 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove cinnamon sticks and pour mixture over sweet potatoes.

3. Cover sweet potatoes and bake 40 minutes. Uncover and cook 20 to 25 minutes more or until sweet potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

I must have channeled you last night! i was thinking of ways i could make the usual veggies a bit different every now and them just to mix it up a bit! what about sprinkling them with almond flakes for a little crunch in the last 5 minutes? perfect alison.
