Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

These baked sweet potatoes are lower in calories, fat, and sugar than the traditional butter and marshmallow version.

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (4 to 6 medium)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coarse-grain Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
Directions
1. 
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1- to 1-1/2-inch chunks. In a large bowl combine the maple syrup, mustard, oil, salt, and pepper; add sweet potatoes and cranberries. Toss to coat. Transfer mixture to a 3-quart baking dish, spreading mixture evenly.
2. 
Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are glazed and tender, stirring twice. Makes 8 servings.
