Sweet Potatoes in Creamy Cinnamon Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 50 mins

This is from the Low Fat Low Cholesterol Cookbook, and b/c I love sweet potatoes and cinnamon thought it would be good. I changed the serving amount after I'm Pat's kind review.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes, then cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Arrange the sweet potato slices in even layers on the bottom of a nonstick 8 inch round or square baking pan.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, brown sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  5. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes.
  6. Dot with the margarine.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, stirring once halfway through the baking time.

My irrational fears of getting old might be getting the best of me along with premature blindness, but for the love of eating, I can't find the brown sugar amount in the listed ingredients. I guessed at the amount of sugar and in the meantime, Fairy Godmother please bring back my vision. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

I really liked this, but I made it fatty. I used heavy cream and butter. I was also feeling lazy, so I just layered the potatoes and sprinkled with spices and brown sugar. They were yummy, and the sauce was very nice. I forgot the orange zest, though.
