A delightful new twist on sweet potatoes that melt in your mouth. These are so good that I make them all the time, not just for holidays. They are that good! The edges get caramelized and crisp and the centers are so soft. The combo of the cinnamon and maple syrup add the right amount of sweetness with a depth of flavor. The pecans give them the finishing touch of crunch.
Melting Sweet Potato Rounds
4 small sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
2 Tablespoon of butter, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup real maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
½ cup chopped pecans
Add the sliced potatoes, melted butter, cinnamon and salt to a medium bowl and toss to coat.
Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
Flip the potatoes, then drizzle them with the maple syrup and continue to bake for about 15-18 more minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp on the outside but soft on the inside.
Arrange on a plate and sprinkle with the pecans. Enjoy!
