Honey Glazed Sweet Potatoes
I don’t know about y’all, but I just get so excited for this time of year! I’m sure many of you are right there with me in this thinking. Cool, crisp fall days and apples and pumpkins and hay rides and leaves changing colors. Those are just a few of the many things I love about fall. And, of course, we have so many holidays to look forward to and celebrate. We associate so many food dishes with this time of year. I tend to make ham a lot more, and, of course, I gotta have my sweet potatoes. These Honey Glazed Sweet Potatoes show up not only during weeknight meals but at every single holiday meal as well. I’m a side dish kinda gal. I get more excited about the side dishes that show up at holiday tables and potlucks than I do the main dish!
And another bonus of this recipe is that it’s all done on the stovetop. So, if oven space is hard to come by during your holiday cooking, then this will be an easy, one-pan side dish to put together all on your stovetop.
- 3 cups sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes

If you've never cut sweet potatoes before, you may be surprised how difficult they can be to cut. So, it's really important you have a good, sharp knife to slice them with. They don't cut quite as easily as russet potatoes. If you like your sweet potatoes a bit sweeter, feel free to add a touch of brown sugar to this.
