Not Too Sweet Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by chillibite

I needed a good sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving that satisfied the marshmallow topping brigade as well as those of us who didn't want something quite so sweet. So I played around with a variety of recipes and came up with this. It's definitely sweet, but not too sweet. And no marshmallow in sight!

5 stars all the way! I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit. Perfect amount of spices and butter. I will be making sweet potatoes this way more than just once a year!
