1hr 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. PREHEAT oven to 400°F.
  2. LINE a 9x13x2-inch baking pan with Non-Stick Aluminum Foil with non-stick side facing up toward food; set aside.
  3. PLACE sweet potatoes in a 3-quart pan of water. Boil, covered, for 20 minutes until tender but firm; drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice into 1/2-inch slices and layer in foil-lined pan.
  4. COMBINE brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until sugar is melted, stirring once. Drizzle 1/3 of mixture over sweet potatoes.
  5. BAKE for 40 to 50 minutes, drizzling with additional glaze every 10 minutes. (Microwave glaze for 30 seconds before drizzling if glaze becomes too thick.) Sprinkle with pecans; spoon glaze over sweet potatoes and pecans before serving.
