Allot more time to prep this dish than indicated. It takes approximately 1 hour 40 minutes if you count boiling potatoes and bringing the syrup to a boil.

Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with everybody, even people who didn't like sweet potatoes. I did double the sauce recipe since I just filled and 8x8 cassarole dish with the potatoes and needed enough sauce to cover. Very yummy.

Awesome! I have tried a lot of sweet potato recipes, easy to very complicated. This is one of the easiest, and definitely the best I've had. Served for Thanksgiving and topped with marshmallows just for fun. Used the amount of sauce called for and it was perfect, more would have been way too sweet. Baked the sweet potatoes the night before (350 degrees for an hour), peeled, cut up, and put in casserole dish which made prep the next day very fast. Most people would probably need to double this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

This recipe was awesome.. the maple syrup made it!! I splurged and bought "real" maple syrup and it was worth it... so good!! Went fantastic with ham, no leftovers!!

My husband is a huge candied sweet potato fan and he actually preferred these over the ones his mom makes (which is amazing!). Wonderful recipe. I will be making this every thanksgiving!

Made for Thanksgiving and everyone loved them. I think using fresh sweet potatoes (not canned) is a key factor in the way these taste. I made the night before and refigerated. I also doubled the sauce and sprikled with pecans. Thanks for the great receipe.

These were amazing!! My husband does not usually eat sweet potatoes but he said these were perfect! Instead of cutting them into pieces, I roughly mashed them in the baking dish, topped them with the butter sauce and put marshmellows on top during the last 10 mins. Perfect!!
