  1. 1

    Start the Sweet Potatoes

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Prepare a casserole dish with cooking spray. For best results, use a 9x13".

    Peel sweet potatoes and slice into 1/4"-thick rounds.

    Shingle sweet potato rounds in prepared casserole dish. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and top with 2 Tbsp. water.

    Cover tightly with foil. Bake covered in hot oven until slightly tender, 30-32 minutes.

    While sweet potatoes bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Make the Syrup

    Bring a small pot with brown sugar, maple syrup, orange juice, ancho cinnamon rub (to taste), and 1/4 tsp. salt to a boil over medium heat.

    Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in butter until melted and combined.

  3. 3

    Finish the Sweet Potatoes

    Carefully remove sweet potatoes from oven. Uncover and pour syrup over sweet potatoes.

    Cover again with foil. Bake again covered in hot oven, 30 minutes.

    For a glazed top, baste potatoes with syrup from bottom of dish by carefully tilting dish and using a spoon or turkey baster to collect and pour again over the top. Repeat every 10 minutes. Dish will be hot; use oven mitts!

    Remove from oven. Rest, 5 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping with goat cheese (crumbling if needed). Bon appétit!
