Forget the marshmallows. Guy Fieri's  Whiskey-Glazed Sweet Potatoes come topped with sweet whiskey-soaked pecans. It's all glazed in agave syrup spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a hit of cayenne and whiskey, for a sweet and spicy side dish.

Sweet potatoes are innately sweet on their own, so Tyler Florence turns to honey and a touch of warming cinnamon to sweeten his sweet potato side dish. Serve these wholesome, easy-to-make  Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon any day of the week all season long.

Creamy scalloped potatoes are the ultimate comfort food side, and Bobby Flay makes them with a twist with his  Smoked Chile Scalloped Sweet Potatoes. With naturally sweet potatoes, plus a hit of chipotle pepper puree, it's a four-ingredient (!) side that leaves the oven creamy, bubbling and hot in two different ways.
