Fried Sweet Potatoes Recipe
  • Peel sweet potatoes, cut into quarters or a little smaller if potato is large. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Boil just until the potatoes begin to soften.
  • Drain water and cut potatoes into thick slices.
  • Heat the butter in a large skillet. When butter is hot, add the sweet potatoes. You should use a pan large enough so the potatoes are not piled on top of each other too much.
  • Fry the potatoes in the butter over medium-high heat until they begin to brown. If necessary you can add a little more butter as you are frying them. Salt and pepper the potatoes to taste if desired.
  • Once they begin to brown, reduce the heat to medium-low or medium and sprinkle the brown sugar over the potatoes. Continue to fry until the potatoes are tender and glazed.
  • Serve immediately.
