What's this?

Wish your sweet potato had more sugared goodness? This recipe was made for the elf you. Maple syrup and cinnamon makes this side dish the star of the show. Ask your buddies what the difference between a sweet potato and a yam is, then let them yammer on about it.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup butter, softened

  • 1/4 Cup pure maple syrup

  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 8 Medium sweet potatoes

Steps

  • 1

    Make the Maple-Cinnamon Butter: In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon and whip with a wooden spoon. (Alternatively, blend the ingredients using a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer.) Transfer to a small bowl, cover, and chill until serving time.

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 375℉, arrange the sweet potatoes on the grill grate and bake until soft, 1 to 1-1/2 hours, depending on the size of the potatoes. Make a slit in the side of each, and squeeze the ends gently to fluff.

    Serve hot with the Maple-Cinnamon Butter. Enjoy!
