The holidays approach, but honestly, sweet potatoes are good anytime of the year.

I love them cubed and roasted like in my Roasted Cranberries, Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple, or this Sweet Potato and Corn Salad, too.

Yams are often confused with sweet potatoes, but we are using sweet potatoes in this recipe.

Yams are quite similar to sweet potatoes and can have reddish or purplish flesh as well, but most often, you’ll find white or cream-colored flesh. Sweet potatoes are usually orange inside.

For this recipe I scrub the sweet potatoes, prick some holes with the tines of a fork to let steam out and bake them for one hour.

Allow the roasted sweet potatoes to slightly cool and slice horizontally. Arrange in a baking dish and pour an amazing and flavorful sauce on top that is beyond easy to make.
