Borrowing from the classic dessert crème brûlée, this dish has a hard candy topping, a crisp contrast to the creamy sweet potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Spoon potato mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar evenly over top. Broil 2 minutes or until sugar melts. Let stand until melted sugar hardens (about 5 minutes).

I've never liked sweet potatoes, but these? O...M...G...INCREDIBLE. And they are great for breakfast, too!

This recipe is a definite keeper. I add chopped pecans in the topping.I have also added a can of drained pineapple tidbits to the potato mixture. This dish is also good with pork roast.

This is an easy recipe that the entire family loves. I have been making this for Thanksgiving and Christmass every year. The only thing I do different is adding more brown sugar.

I made this recipe a few years ago for thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! It is usually devoured within minutes every year. The only thing I do different is that I roast the sweet potatoes whole in aluminum foil the day before and I prepare everything else at last minute. Still, the bruleed topping is to die for.
