Sometimes I bake them just like I would a regular potatoe, so they get that nice crusty skin and all soft on the inside. A tiny pat of butter and some S & P finish them off nicely.

My favorite way to make them is to peel them and then slice into rounds about 1/4 inch thick. Toss with EVOO and salt. Roast at 450 for about 30 minutes. Then add some sweet onion wedges. Stir 'em up and add a dash more EVOO for the onions if necessary. Roast for about 20-30 minutes more. Again, a little S & P is all I use to finish them off before digging in.

Mashing them is also a great idea! A dash of butter is yummy in them that way.

I think the sweet of the potato is enough so I'm not huge fan of adding maple syrup. But that's how I used to get my son to eat them! =P The things we will do to get our kids to eat vegetables...

The cinnamon and nutmeg ideas sound nice. I think I'll try that next time.

I peel the sweet potato and cut in chunks like I would boiled potatoes. Cook until tender. Serve mashed with a little butter added or just serve the chunks. We like the tast of sweet potatoes so usually don't add sugar or any other spice. They always turn out good. When boiling check them by piercing them with a fork like you would a regular potato to see if they are tender.
