- 4 pounds sweet potatoes peeled, halved and cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2/3 cup dark brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9"x13" pan or 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Place the sweet potatoes in an even layer in the dish.
In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
