Baked Lemon Sweet Potatoes

This is a family recipe that I remember having during the Holidays. It is good hot, room temperature and cold. It keeps well in the refrigerator (it usually gets eaten rapidly).

Instructions

  1. 1Sprinkle ¼ cup of brown sugar and salt mixture in the bottom of a lightly buttered baking dish (approx. 13”x9”x2”).
  2. 2Arrange slices of sweet potato and lemon in layers in the baking dish. Sprinkle each layer with the brown sugar and salt mixture, End with a layer of sliced lemon with brown sugar and salt sprinkled over the lemons.
  3. 3Pour the melted butter over potatoes evenly. Cover and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until lemons on top are lightly browned.
