sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
I didn't have maple syrup in the house so I replaced the maple syrup with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of honey...boy did I get rave reviews from the family! Everyone loved this, including my youngest daughter who can be quite picky when it comes to vegetables. This will be seen on our dinner table again!
These were okay - just a little too sweet for me but my daughter really enjoyed this. I took a combination of other suggestions to reduce the sweetness: used 1/4c maple syrup, 1/4c honey and 2 TBLS brown sugar, A nice change to mashed potatoes but I'm not sure if I'm going to attempt them again. Still, thanks rainspirit for sharing the recipe.
Nice complement to pecan breaded chicken made from this site. Makes girls like me more. Which is peculiar since my charming personality should be enough.
I essentially made this but with a slight twist. I boiled 2 sweet potatoes and 1 carrot then mashed them together with 1/4 milk, 2 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of margarine. It was delicious! I will definitely make it again. On a side note I've also made this with a crisp. To do that put the finished mash into a casserole dish. In a separate bowl combine 1 tbsp melted butter, 1/2 crushed bran flakes and 1/4 cup pecans and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. Mix well and sprinkle on top of squash mash. Broil it in oven until crisp is lightly browned. Serve. Delicious!
I didn't need to break out the mixer... potatoes were soft enough to just mash up with a fork. All you really need here is half the butter and the syrup the recipe calls for and NO milk. SO much healthier that way (I even used light syrup). A couple dashes of cinnamon and yum!
My husband couldn't stop raving about these. I added a bit of cloves and cinnamon as well. Perfect sidedish for a fall meal!
Thank you for sharing this. We love nutritous sweet potatoes and this one is easier than the casseroles that are so popular. The maple syrup gives it a wonderful taste. Didn't rate kid opinion because we don't have any at home. Did not need this much milk.
30 minutes was not enough time for the potatoes to cook. Next time I will cook them longer. Instead of all that maple syrup I used about 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of white sugar and topped it with cinnamon. Came out good, but a little lumpy because of the undercooked potatoes.
