Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Cipollini Onions

1 lb. Red Dog Cipollini onions, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 lbs. Red Dog Sweet Potatoes, cut into slices
Salt and pepper
3 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 Tbs. sage leaves, thinly sliced
Heat oil in saute pan over medium heat until almost smoking. Add onions, and saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and continue to cook onions until tender, about 5 minutes more. Remove onions. Reheat pan over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Add sweet potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until browned, about 20 minutes. Add butter, and cook, stirring, until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and onions, and cook another 4 minutes, until maple syrup has reduced to a glaze. Stir in sage, and season with salt and pepper.
