    An interesting twist on an old favourite.

    Sweet Potatoes With Orange Pecan Butter

    * 6 x small sweet potatoes
    * 1/4 cup vegetable oil (60ml)

    Orange Pecan Butter

    * 1/2 cup unsalted softened butter (125ml)
    * 2 tsp liquid honey (10ml)
    * Juice and zest of 2 oranges
    * 1/4 cup chopped roasted pecans (60ml)
    * 1/2 tsp of dry mustard (2.5ml)
    * 1/2 tsp dried chilli (2.5ml)
    * Salt and pepper to taste

    Sweet Potatoes With Orange Pecan Butter

    1. Preheat barbeque to 220F/104C or medium heat.
    2. Scrub sweet potatoes clean and prick all over with a fork. Rub with oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap with aluminium foil and place the potatoes on a tray.
    3. Place the potatoes on the grill and allow to cook for 2 hours or until potatoes are fork tender.
    4. Meanwhile, prepare Orange Pecan Butter. Place all the butter ingredients into a small saucepan. Cook the ingredients over low heat for 1 minute.
    5. Remove potatoes from grill and carefully peel back the foil.
    6. Slice potatoes lengthways and drizzle with Orange Pecan Butter before serving.

    Serves 6.

    So, how many Carbs/Calories would that be (to the nearest million)

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Hehehe. This recipe didn't include that info, but I would go easy on the butter, lessen the honey, and you could also leave out or reduce the nuts. I make a version of this when I do baked mashed yams.

    I prefer yams to sweet potatoes as they are much better for you and have a stronger flavour. I don't think they're any less carb-heavy, tho.
