"Sweet potatoes are baked with raisins and chopped pecans in this side dish that's satisfying and not too sweet. A syrup mixture is drizzled over the top as a glaze." — katysue

sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
Perfect holiday side dish because it's so easy to make and delicious. I used sugar-free maple syrup to lower the calories and it still tasted great.
This was a very east dish to prepare, but if you're going to cook it in one layer of cubed sweet potatoes, like the recipe says, be prepared to use two pans, or get only three sweet potatoes. I must have chosen enormous potatoes, because I could have filled two dishes. I would probably use less water to make the syrup thicker, but it was still extremely good. Not as rich as some of the sweet potato dishes I've had in the past.
This was a big hit. Made it exact to directions! Was absolutely beautiful Made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
This was so easy and great at thanksgiving. Was asked at dinner to make it again next year. Doubled the recipe, and put into a deeper baking dish (wasn't in a single layer) and baked 1/2hour longer.
The sweet potato fans at my Thanksgiving dinner really liked this dish and told me to give it a five-star rating. Instead of baking the potatoes, I cut them in small chunks and boiled them until they were tender but still firm (only because I spaced out about the time it takes to bake them), then put them in the oven with the turkey for 30 min.
This was pretty good. I used 5 potatoes and had to layer them. I baked them at 375 for about an hour and they were perfect.
This dish was TOO good! I ate the whole thing myself and spent the rest of the night feeling guilty! If there was anything I'd change it would be to use a little less water, so that the syrup would be a bit thicker.
The best recipe I've found for sweet potatoes! Made it exactly as stated, and wouldn't change a thing. Big hit in our house.
