Candied Sweet Potatoes

Eating Candied Sweet Potatoes is like eating dessert first!

Are you one who like to eat dessert first?  With this Candied Sweet Potatoes side dish, it seems like you are. This is a family favorite and one my Mom made while I was growing up.  Even those not crazy about sweet potatoes (or so they think!) like these.  Use Agave, Maple syrup or any old pancake syrup. No Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, birthday or special occasion meal is complete without these! They are delicious with turkey and stuffing or a ham dinner. Make them ahead and keep the pan ready to go in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake them. 

Other potato dishes we love are Special Mashed Potatoes and Garlic Butter Red Potatoes.
