By

Sweet potatoes become a real treat with the simple additions of butter, brown sugar, and raspberries. This dish is incredibly easy to put together and makes a nice change from traditional sweet potato casseroles.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 8 medium-size sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen raspberries, thawed and undrained

Preparation:

Cook sweet potatoes in boiling salted water 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain and let cool to touch. Peel and cut in half lengthwise.

Spread brown sugar mixture over cut surface of sweet potatoes. Top with raspberries and juice.
