Peel and slice your sweet potatoes. About ⅛-inch thick. Layer them in a baking dish.
Melt your butter and mix with orange juice, maple syrup, and salt. Pour this mixture over your sweet potatoes.
Cover the sweet potatoes with foil and cook in your oven for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop pecans and mix them with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Remove the potatoes from the oven after 30 minutes and remove the foil, sprinkle the pecan/sugar mixture on top evenly. Put back in the oven for another 30 minutes, without foil. (If the potatoes look dry, you can spoon some of the orange juice at the bottom of your dish on top.
If you’d like to caramelize the brown sugar, broil for an additional 2-3 minutes. And then remove from the oven.
Cool about 5 minutes before serving (the sugar on top gets really hot!) Enjoy.
