Nothing better than this combo of sweet potatoes, brown sugar, butter and pecans… just like candy - except it's vegetables! 4 medium sweet potatoes 2 tablespoons olive oil Coarse salt 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar ⅓ cup pecan pieces ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper Directions Preheat oven to 400ºF. Peel potatoes and halve lengthwise; slice crosswise ½" thick. On a baking sheet toss the potatoes with olive oil and season with salt. Cook until potatoes are tender, tossing occasionally, 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with butter, brown sugar, pecan pieces, and cayenne pepper. Bake until sugar is caramelized and hard, about 10 minutes.
