These southern sweet potatoes are the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving.
If you are like me then you like these sugary sweet potatoes any time of the year. So yum!
- Sweet potatoes (3 lbs)
- Butter (1 stick)
- Sugar (1 cup)
Peel potatoes and chop in slices, keep them in cold water while peeling otherwise they will turn brown on you.
Boil potatoes in skillet with enough water to cover all the potatoes.
Cover with lid and continue to boil until potatoes are just barely tender. (Approx 20 minutes)
Drain water, leaving about 2 tablespoons of water left in the pan. Melt a stick of butter in the potatoes then add 1 cup of sugar. Let the syrup get thick.
I added the sugar before the butter was melted just for picture purposes but I wouldn’t recommend it. Let the butter melt first.
You can keep these southern sweet potatoes chunky or mash them together.
Either way, the result is some not so good for you but very yummy in my tummy sweet potatoes.
This is my aunt’s recipe. She cooks these sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving and it is one thing I look forward to every year.
