  • That is how most people make sweet potatoe casserole. They just mash them up, add an egg, and i think some milk, sugar and such and put a crunchy topping on it. If you dont have the time for that you can just mash them up with some milk and i would add some brown sugar and butter. Or you could sprinkle it on top. Make sure the potatoes are hot enough to melt the sugar. The casserole is the way to go though! YUM

  • We love mashed potatoes. They are a great early solid for babies. I like to put in a little butter, salt and cumin.

  • I whip them up with Cheddar Cheese! A little salt, pepper, and butter.

    I use the left overs, like there are ever left over cheddar sweet potatoes... to make Mayan burritos!

    cheddar mashed sweet potato
    black beans
    chipotle salsa
    avocado
    more cheese!

    in a burrito! OMG! It's soooo good. Since it's black and orange it's a really fun Halloween kids meal. Use milder salsa.

    Here's one of my fav sweet potato recipes

    it's a "grits cake" made with sweet potatoes. Southern food done healthy and right.
