Mashed Sweet Potatoes Brulee
I am a little late (okay a lot late) in posting this deliciously scrumptious holiday recipe. However, if you're a sweet potato fan like me, you'll enjoy this mashed sweet potato recipe all year long.

There was not a single scrap of mashed sweet potatoes brulee left over after Thanksgiving's just too good. I admit to getting a little nervous waiting for the brown sugar to melt, so I probably took it out a little too soon. If you're a Chicken Little like me, it still tastes absolutely yummy even if all of the brown sugar doesn't melt under the broiler.

Happy Cooking!

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
