Number of Servings: 4


    3 medium sweet potatoes
    ~15 sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter buttery spray
    ~1/4 cup (unpacked) brown sugar
    ~2 Tbsp. cinnamon

    (amounts above are those entered for nutritional info, can be altered with minimal effect to nutritional info to suit your taste)


Peel the sweet potatoes and then slice them into approx. 1/2 inch thick rings. If your sweet potato is very fat, you may want to cut some of the large dics into semicircles. Put all of the sweet potato slices into a glass baking dish (you don;t have to do this carefully, but make sure they are reasonably evenly spread in the dish). Spray the tops with I Can't Belive It's Not Butter spray and then sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender. Uncover and continue baking about 15 more minutes so the edges get chewy.

Makes about 4 1-cup servings.

Number of Servings: 4

    I make a similar dish. I have made it at every family get together at their request for 2 years. It is such an easy recipe. I do make some changes. I use 1/4 cup of splenda, no margarine or can't believe it's not butter spray (but good idea) and a tbsp of cinnamon. My kids even love it. - 10/9/10

    I used half of one potato for an individual serving. Used one Tabls brown sugar, and 1/4 cup splenda, still 15 sprays.. Was AMAZING! - 9/5/10

    These actually took almost twice teh time to be as tender as we like them (and we did cut them into about 1 cm thick medallions) but was great. The cinnamon really added a nice pump of flavor. - 1/7/10
