Total: 1 Hour, 5 Minutes


6 medium-size sweet potatoes (about 4 lb.)
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 325°. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch-thick slices; arrange in a single layer in 2 lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dishes.

2. Stir together brown sugar and next 5 ingredients; pour over potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil.

3. Bake at 325° for 45 minutes or until fork-tender. Uncover and bake 5 more minutes or until glaze becomes syrupy.

Make Ahead: Cover and chill cooked potatoes up to 1 day. To reheat, let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Bake, covered with foil, at 350° for 20 minutes.
