Ingredients

4 teaspoons unsalted butter
4 pounds sweet potatoes or yams
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
8 ounces pecan pieces

Preparation

Heat oven to 350° F. Place the butter on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven until melted.

Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1-inch chunks. Add with the remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 45 minutes.
