I tried a variation on the preparation. I peeled the sweet potato with a potato peeler, then cut the raw potato into medallion slices, maybe 1/8" thick. I laid these out in a single layer in a glass microwave safe dish and cooked in the microwave for two to three minutes. I then transferred the slices to a cookie sheet lined with foil and sprayed lightly with olive oil. The butter and brown sugar I applied as directed above.
This is a simple, healthy way to make sweet potatoes. I ended up dumping a bunch of brown sugar on top at the end, but you could do it without that too. Next time I would melt the butter beforehand because messing around with the little bits of butter was a pain. Also, I almost forgot to stab the potato with a fork before microwaving it, so for my fellow beginners out there, don't forget that step! unless you want exploding potatoes.
Yummy like candy! I used I Can't Belive It's Not Butter spray (0 calories) and Splenda Brown Sugar.
Very easy to make and tastey! Used brown sugar instead of white sugar. Boiled the potatoes instead of microwaving them.
We love this. Add 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to the sugar and mix together. I use Olivio buttery spray instead of butter which makes it easy and better on the waisteline.
Easy and Yummy - thanks for sharing!
Very quick and easy to prepare and very tasty too!
Really good. We aren't a big sugar family so I used a little sea salt and butter instead. Came out great!
