Glazed sweet potatoes is a very nice fall side dish. Perfect on the Thanksgiving table, or any fall inspired meal. TheSweet_potatoes sweet potatoes go particularly well with a nice piece of light meat such as turkey, pork, ham or chicken...

This recipe is very simple, yet very tasty.
The ginger ale adds a little extra something and the brown sugar sweetens the potatoes nicely. You could easily substitute the sweet potatoes for yams or even carrots. For a nice garnish, sprinkle some fresh parsley on top.
