Tony Roma's Maple Sweet Potatoes
1 large yam
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped pecans
3 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Bake the yam in the oven for 40–45 minutes at 400°F.
Remove the yam from oven and allow it to cool enough so that you can handle it. Remove the skin and slice into 1" pieces.
In a large skillet, melt the butter and sauté the onion and pecans for approximately 2 minutes, until the onion pieces begin to turn brown.
Add the yam slices, maple syrup, and cinnamon and sauté for 3–5 minutes, stirring often, until the yam pieces are hot and tender.
