Sweet Potatoes In Praline Pecan Sauce Recipe

A very delicious recipe for Sweet Potatoes in Praline Sauce


4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Boil the potatoes in salted water until not quite tender, about 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Prepare the sauce by melting the sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.

In a short time the sugar will begin to turn to a light golden brown. Stir to prevent burning.

When light brown syrup is formed, immediately add the corn syrup, followed by the water. Blend thoroughly.

Allow to cool for just a moment and then stir in the pecans, butter, salt and vanilla extract.

Place the potatoes in a greased baking dish. Spinkle the pecans evenly on top.

Pour some of the sauce over the potatoes and pecans and bake for about 20 minutes.
