    Ingredients :
    2 cups white sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 pinch salt
    1/2 cup butter
    6 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    Directions :
    In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together.
    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add sweet potatoes, and stir to coat.
    Sprinkle sugar mixture over the sweet potatoes, and stir.
    Cover skillet, and reduce heat to low.
