SD Fried Sweet Potatoes

Fried Sweet Potatoes


4 to 5   large unpeeled sweet potatoes

1/2   cup butter

1 1/2   cups sugar


Place whole sweet potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat on stovetop and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and cut into 1/4-inch slices.

In a large skillet on stovetop, melt butter. 

Layer sweet-potato slices in bottom of skillet and pour sugar over potatoes. Cook over medium-high heat until potatoes are tender and sugar begins to caramelize. Do not stir potatoes, just turn them carefully with a spatula to prevent sticking.
