Sweet Potatoes

Becky Graves


This is an easy way to have Sweet Potatoes . My Mom taught me this recipe. She also said that Beauregard yams have better flavor than sweet potatoes- and she's right!
Mom didn't use measurements for the butter or brown sugar, just eyeballed it!

How to Make Sweet Potatoes


  1. Boil yams with skin on, until you can stick a fork in them, but not done all the way. As soon as they have cooled enough to handle, peel off skin, slice length wise- thin slices
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F.
    Melt butter in a pan on the stove, add brown sugar and yam slices. Cook until warmed through, place in a casserole dish, pour brown sugar/butter sauce on top, cook in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.
