Sweet potatoes don’t need much to enhance their naturally sweet flavor. In this recipe we use a little maple syrup and butter to bring out a rich, delicious flavor.
6 sweet potatoes
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup melted butter
½ teaspoon salt
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400F
Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 1 hour or until tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Cut the sweet potatoes in half and carefully scoop out the orange flesh into a large mixing bowl. Add the maple syrup, melted butter and salt and blend with a handheld mixer.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
