    Maple-roasted sweet potatoes! They are so good. Reduce the maple syrup to make them more primal.


    INGREDIENTS

    2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 8 cups)

    1/3 cup pure maple syrup

    2 tablespoons butter, melted

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Freshly ground pepper, to taste


    PREPARATION

    Preheat oven to 400F.

    Arrange sweet potatoes in an even layer in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Combine maple syrup, butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper in small bowl. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes; toss to coat.

    Cover and bake the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook, stirring every 15 minutes, until tender and starting to brown, 45 to 50 minutes more.

    TIPS & NOTES

    Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Just before serving, reheat at 350F until hot, about 15 minutes.

    For those who do dairy: Bake, remove skins, and mash with butter and heavy cream.


    There are no incorrect proportions, although my test monkeys appear to like half a pint of cream and one stick of butter per three large sweet potatoes.

    I do mashed sweet potatoes using butter as the liquid portion and then add in some cinnamon. Not sure how well it will work out as a larger pot-luck kind of dish, but it works on the small 2 person scale!

    In your face, Space Coyote!

    Here is the recipe I am planning to use from the Food Network website:


    Ingredients

    2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 large), scrubbed

    2 large eggs, lightly beaten

    3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the preparing the pan

    2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

    Pinch freshly grated nutmeg

    Freshly ground black pepper

    1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans


    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Put the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and pierce each one 2 or 3 times with a fork. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until tender. Set aside to cool.


    Turn the oven down to 350 degrees F. Scoop the sweet potato out of their skins and into a medium bowl. Discard the skins. Mash the potatoes until smooth. Add the eggs, butter, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and the pepper to taste. Whisk the mixture until smooth.


    Butter an 8-by-8-inch casserole. Pour the sweet potato mixture into the pan and sprinkle the top with the pecans. Bake until puffed, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

    I'm planning on making some sweet potato casserole for the family (non primal), but bringing some plain baked sweet potatoes for myself. I like them plain, with fresh lemon squeezed on top. Very yummy!
