Skillet Sweet Potatoes

Orange for Skillet Sweet Potatoes

Give traditional candied sweet potatoes a new twist with snappy orange flavor and a speedy Skillet Sweet Potatoes dish.


1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar or molasses
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt


Place sweet potatoes in a 12-inch skillet; cover with boiling water and cook, covered, about 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain well.

Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small mixing bowl combine orange peel, orange juice, brown sugar or molasses, margarine or butter, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Pour over the cooked potatoes in the skillet. Cook and stir until bubbly. Boil gently, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until potatoes are glazed, spooning sauce over potatoes occasionally.
