My good friend Kellie shared this recipe with me years ago when we used to worked together. I was looking for some recipes for our Thanksgiving dinner and found it while thumbing through my recipe box. I haven’t seen Kellie in years, but just seeing her name on the recipe card made me giggle. She is one of the funniest people I know! I have so many memories of laughing ’til my stomach hurt with Kellie…and get togethers that revolved around making and eating delicious food!
So I knew I’d love these sweet potatoes.
Smooth and creamy, buttery, and sweetened with brown sugar and maple syrup. Simple, yet rich and delicious! The sweet potatoes are where it’s at on my Thanksgiving dinner plate and we’re adding these to the menu this year!
- 3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbs butter, room temp
- Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling water until very soft and cooked through; drain. Transfer back into the pot.
- Add sugar, syrup and butter and whip until fluffy and there are no lumps.
