    Heat remaining ingredients in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Add potatoes. Gently stir until glazed and hot.

Expert Tips

  • Make this extra fast and easy. Just omit step 1, and use 1 can (23 ounces) sweet potatoes or yams, drained and cut into 1/2-inch slices, in place of the fresh sweet potatoes.
  • Make Pineapple Sweet Potatoes by omitting the 3 tablespoons water and adding an 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple in syrup, undrained.
