Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Serves 6
  • 3 to 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash the sweet potatoes and place on a baking tray. Do not prick or oil the potatoes. Bake for approximately 50 minutes or until just cooked, being careful not to over cook them. Cool.

Peel the cooled sweet potatoes and cut them into medium sized cubes.

In a large sauté pan, heat the butter and remaining ingredients together to form a light caramel. Add the potato cubes to the pan and brown together. Season and serve with a drizzle of the sauce.
