I was looking for a different sweet potato dish and this one caught my eye because of the topping!! YUM!!! I got it from Miss Skinny Gina’s Recipe Box and I plan on trying it Thanksgiving weekend!
Mashed sweet potatoes with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, topped with a caramelized brown sugar crust. Sweet potatoes are a must for Thanksgiving and this dish will be a hit on your Holiday table.
To prepare ahead, make the mashed sweet potatoes the day before, then re-heat them before topping with sugar and broiling. Once you broil them, you’ll want to serve them right away. If you are bringing them to someone’s house, don’t add the brown sugar topping until you are ready to serve.
- 5 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and boiled until soft (6 cups cooked)
- 3/4 cup 1% milk
- 3 tbsp light butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup unpacked light brown sugar
When the potatoes are cooked and soft, combine them with milk, light butter, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mash or puree until smooth.
Spoon into a 9 x 9 or 11 x 7-inch baking dish.
Preheat the broiler. Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar evenly over top. Broil 2 minutes or until sugar melts, careful not to burn. Let it stand until the melted sugar hardens (about 5 minutes).
