Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
"Maple syrup gives these sweet potatoes a nice caramelized taste. When I was growing up, I thought of sweet potatoes as overly sweet. Then I started playing around with them in recipes and discovered how much I liked them and how good they are for you. Now I eat them often." --CL Reader

Ingredients

  • 5 cups (1/2-inch-thick) slices peeled sweet potato (about 2 pounds)
  • Cooking spray
