This was a very east dish to prepare, but if you're going to cook it in one layer of cubed sweet potatoes, like the recipe says, be prepared to use two pans, or get only three sweet potatoes. I must have chosen enormous potatoes, because I could have filled two dishes. I would probably use less water to make the syrup thicker, but it was still extremely good. Not as rich as some of the sweet potato dishes I've had in the past.

Perfect holiday side dish because it's so easy to make and delicious. I used sugar-free maple syrup to lower the calories and it still tasted great.
