I got this recipe off the AOL food boards quite some time ago. It was posted by Teri and it quickly became a favorite.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil sweet potatoes in water until tender; drain. Cool slightly and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Arrange the slices in a greased, broiler-proof 13x9 baking dish, overlapping slightly.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar, salt, orange zest, pepper, orange juice, and vanilla stirring until combined. Heat but do not allow to boil.
  3. Remove from heat and brush sauce evenly over potato slices.
  4. Broil 6 inches from heat until golden, about 6 or 7 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans.

A very nice sweet potato dish. Just make sure to use pure vanilla not extract.
