  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Peel sweet potatoes once they are cool enough to handle. Slice sweet potatoes into 1-inch thick rounds; arrange in a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  3. Mix brown sugar, butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt together in a saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring often, until sugar has dissolved and butter has melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour sauce over sliced sweet potatoes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and sauce has slightly reduced, about 1 hour. Serve hot.

Very sweet! No need for marshmallows here! My husband said TOO sweet! I said YUM!!! I prefer this very much over other sweet potatoes I've had! I'll make this again to share during the holidays....

Make no mistake, this is a sweet, sweet potatoes dish but I thought it was wonderful. I’m even thinking of mashing them up with some of the syrup and topping with a huge dollop of whipped cream...
