Nothing spells Thanksgiving quite like sweet potatoes. Here Emeril masterfully prepares the sweet potatoes with a sweet caramelized cane syrup.

Ingredients

  • About 3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup cane syrup (we recommend Steen's)
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400??F.

    Combine the sweet potatoes with the oil and salt in a mixing bowl, and toss to coat well. Place the

    sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and arrange them in a single layer. Transfer to the oven and cook until

    they begin to caramelize and soften, about 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, combine all the remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

    Transfer the potatoes to a casserole dish. Pour the syrup mixture over them, and using a spatula, toss to coat well. Return the casserole to the oven and continue to cook, carefully stirring once, until the potatoes are caramelized and tender, about 30 minutes.

    Serve hot.
