Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this would make an excellent side dish for your turkey if you are thinking of adding something new. The sweetness of the brown sugar, the crunchiness of the pecans and the hit of spice from the pepper makes this a great dish. Even if you prefer the traditional side dishes for your Thanksgiving feast; this is a recipe you can make this fall. I love using in season produce and this is one that you will find in plenty at the store.
Butter Pecan Sweet Potatoes
8 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, half lengthwise and slice crosswise 1/2 inch thick
2 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup pecan pieces
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with olive oil. Season with salt.
Transfer half of the potatoes to a second baking sheet. Cook both sheets until potatoes are tender, tossing occasionally, 25-30 minutes.
Sprinkle with butter, brown sugar, pecan pieces, and cayenne pepper. Spread evenly between both pans. Bake until sugar is caramelized and hard about 10 minutes. Toss gently. Serve immediately.
