This is a recipe for simple pan fried sweet potatoes with butter.


  • 2 pounds large sweet potatoes, sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 5 tablespoons butter


Heat butter in a large heavy skillet. When butter begins to foam, add the sliced sweet potatoes. Cover and lower heat. After about 5 minutes, uncover and turn the sweet potatoes with a spatula. Cover and continue to cook until tender, another 5 minutes. Check frequently to make sure the potatoes don't burn. Uncover and continue to cook for a few minutes, to glaze the potatoes. Serve hot.
