Betty Crocker's Heart Healthy Cookbook shares a recipe! Enjoy these caramelized skillet onions and potatoes for an easy side dish that’s ready just 30 minutes.
Updated Aug 18, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon canola or soybean oil
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and sliced (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 large sweet onion (Bermuda, Maui, Spanish or Walla Walla), sliced
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon jerk seasoning (dry)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook sweet potatoes and onion in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender.
  • 2
    Stir in brown sugar and jerk seasoning. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until glazed. Sprinkle with parsley.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    "What a great, easy side dish to serve with pork. I love Wallla Walla onions; I think of them as being so good for me.” Lori S.
  • tip 2
    Despite their extra sweetness, sweet potatoes have only a few more calories per ounce than white potatoes, but they have lots more vitamin A. Paired with the onion and seasonings in this recipe, they make a great side dish.
