Sweet potatoes are often so sweet on their own, however during holidays like Thanksgiving, they often are used in even more decadent recipes.  Not to mention, New Orleans is known for their sweet potato pies.  My mom’s version of sweet potatoes usually take up half my plate during Thanksgiving, so I decided to make a spin-off version. It may not be a completely “clean” or a healthy recipe, but it does significantly cut down on the calories and sugar from the traditional versions.

For four:

  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced as thin as possible or 1/8 inch thick
  • 3 T cinnamon
  • 2 T nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar free syrup
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1 T cracked salt
  • 1 T cracked pepper

1) Preheat your oven to 400. In a large bowl mix all ingredients except salt and pepper. You can slice up your butter so it is mixed evenly.

2) In an oven safe pan or casserole dish, stack your potatoes like dominoes.

3) Bake covered with tinfoil for 20 minutes. Bake without tinfoil for another 20-30 minutes depending on how dark you like them.

4) Arrange on a serving plate and crack salt and pepper over top. Goes great with your traditional Easter ham and a salty green vegetable.
