Spiced Sweet Potato Casserole

Submitted by: PERIDRAGON

Introduction

I love sweet potatoes, especially with spices. This recipe has plenty of flavour - the spice combination is reminiscent of pumpkin pie and the maple syrup gives it added sweetness that's more interesting than sugar. It's packed with vitamins for less than 90 calories per serving - go ahead, have seconds! I love sweet potatoes, especially with spices.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3 medium-to-large sweet potatoes
    1/2 tbsp butter
    1 tbsp milk (I use 1%)
    1 tbsp maple syrup (the real stuff!)
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp ground allspice

Directions

Bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave in the skin (don't forget to puncture them with a fork first!) until they are soft, about 10-15 minutes. (You can bake them in the oven instead if you prefer - it takes about 45 minutes at 400F.)

Scoop out the flesh and put it in a mixing bowl. Add butter, milk, and maple syrup and beat with mixer until well-beaten and smooth. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice and mix to blend. Serve warm - the casserole can be heated in the oven in an ovenproof dish prior to serving if it has cooled off.

Makes 6 servings.
