Cast Iron Sweet Potatoes

This post is apart of my other post “Friend’s Dinner.” I had my best friend and her husband come over when they were both not having a very good week and showed them that i cared the best way I could. Cooking. This dish that turns out delicious even if you do not put a lot of effort into it…..

Throughout the crazy in our own lives, we must think about the people around us. I care for these two like I would my own family. My way of showing I care is through my food. I make you delicious dinners to show my love because that’s how I know best.

My best friend and her husband have been going through a rough patch recently in their lives. Sickness, deaths in the family, and other problems. I’m not going to share too much because I don’t want to invade their privacy, but everybody needs to be reminded that somebody does care deeply. Life is short and we do have to go through the bad times to remind us those good days are still ahead. It may not seem like it at the time but it’s happening. That value of patience is hard to keep and we all know why.

Caramelized Sweet Potatoes with softened butter and molasses. Topped with brown sugar.


  • 3 Medium-large Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 stick of butter ~ 8 Tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon of molasses
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • Salt & pepper (optional)


  1. Start by boiling your sweet potatoes in water for 15-20 minutes. Make sure they are soft enough to slide a fork or knife all the way through.
  2. Take out of the water and slice them into discs about an inch thick. You can get fancy if you want but circles were easiest for me.
  3. Add a Tablespoon of butter to the hot cast iron pan.
  4. Add the sweet potatoes onto the pan and don’t move them so they can get that caramelized look.
  5. While they are cooking I mixed together softened butter and molasses to spoon over when done cooking.
  6. Add sweet potatoes to a plate, spoon the mixture over the potatoes and then sprinkle brown sugar on top and serve.

If you enjoy our recipes, or remake them let us know how they turned out. We enjoy making food and hope that others would enjoy eating it.
