Spiced Candied Sweet Potatoes are loaded with warm spices and brown sugar to make a simple side dish for holidays or any night.
I am not a big fan of marshmallows on sweet potatoes because I grew up with these for Thanksgiving. Slightly sweet and loaded with aromatic spices are a delicious holiday side dish that you can make any time.
Today Our Family Table Bloggers are featuring Make Ahead Thanksgiving dishes. To make these ahead of time you can boil the potatoes and mix everything in the casserole dish, then just pop it in the oven to heat while the main course is resting.
