Sweet potatoes come in different colors, from white to yellow to orange to orange-red. The darker the inside, the sweeter it is. I chose white because I was adding maple syrup and brown sugar, but any sweet potato will do.

  • Place sweet potato on a cutting board. Place a chopstick on either side. Cut the sweet potato into 1/8-inch-thick slices, making sure you don't cut all the way through. Transfer to a baking pan.

  • Mix melted butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together. Spoon over the sweet potato.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tender, 45 to 60 minutes.

  • Using your hands, make streusel by combining 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons brown sugar, pecans, flour, butter, and salt. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

  • Remove the sweet potato from the oven and sprinkle streusel over the top. Place in the broiler until streusel starts to brown, 1 to 3 minutes.
