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.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 5 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 ounce raisins
- 1 ounce chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Spread sweet potatoes in a single layer in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with raisins and chopped pecans.
In a small bowl, mix the butter, syrup and water. Pour the mixture over potatoes.
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven 50 to 60 minutes, until sweet potatoes are tender.
