This supremely simple dish is rich with the flavor of maple. Although it requires last-minute preparation, the recipe is easy enough to tackle no matter how many items are on your holiday menu.

  • Melt butter in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat evenly. Add maple syrup; toss potatoes to coat, and bring to a boil.

  • Transfer skillet to oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden, well glazed, and tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot, garnished with thyme.

I've been making this recipe for several years for Thanksgiving 🦃🍠 and Christmas 🎄 and everyone always likes it.

I had to look this recipe up again a year later as I got requests for it from our Christmas guests--they remembered it from last Christmas!

I thought this would be a sugar-bomb with the maple syrup, but combined with the butter makes it so delicious as you get a slight caramelization. I used yams and also made a vegan version using earth balance instead of butter. The thyme sprinkled on top adds some contrasting color for a pretty presentation.
