Cut the sweet potatoes into 1" cubes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and take some of the butter to butter a casserole dish. Add the sweet potatoes, COVER, and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove lid & drain excess liquid. YOUR CHOICE
Top sweet potatoes with remaining butter, honey, and any of the other options you'd like to try. Bake UNCOVERED for 10-15 minutes, until the syrup is bubbly around the potatoes.
