Preheat oven to 475°F. Melt butter and add to a large bowl. Add sage, thyme, cinnamon, black pepper, and sea salt. Mix to combine. Add sliced sweet potatoes and stir to coat completely in mixture. Add potatoes to a large metal baking dish in a single layer.
Bake potatoes 15 minutes. Remove from oven, flip potatoes, and bake another 15 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven and carefully add broth to dish. Carefully place back in the oven and bake for a final 15 minutes.
While potatoes roast, caramelize pecans: add butter to a skillet over medium heat. Add in pecans and toss to combine. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add maple syrup and cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until pecans are caramelized and syrupy. Remove from heat. Add melted sweet potatoes to a dish and garnish with caramelized pecans and additional chopped fresh thyme, if desired. Enjoy!
