This sweet potato recipe was well received at Thanksgiving and was requested as one of the sides for Christmas dinner. And no one guessed that it was a low fat dish. Sweet potatoes are essentially a good carb but surprisingly or not so much they can be paired with butter and sugar and still be healthy. And delicious. Oh so delicious.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes Brulee
Adapted from Skinnytaste.com
5 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and boiled until soft
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).
