  • Question:-any awesome sweet potato recipes?
    i bought real maple syrup, i have every ingredient known to man for baking needs and i bought a 5lb. bag of sweet potatoes. i bought the maple syrup because i remember making this 7 yrs ago and it was in the recipe. but i forgot to research a recipe before going grocery shopping today! the store is a mad house btw and i was under pressure to try to remember what i put in it. ooo i also bought heavy that in the recipe aswell?

    Answer:-If it were me, I'd prepare the potatoes, put in about a cup of maple syrup, 1/4 cup of butter, a cup of heavy cream, and a good tsp of salt, a tbsp cinnamon and a tbsp good vanilla extract. I'd mash it all up together, put it in a baking pan, and save until you're ready to cook it. I'd reheat it at 350 degrees for 45 min, then cover with marshmallows and give it an additional 10 min at 400 degrees.

    Kraft has a great recipe on their site, if you can find it--with cream cheese or neufachel and pecans on top.

  • Question:-Great low-sugar sweet potato recipes?
    So I can find a lot of recipes online for sweet potato but a lot of them use a ton of sugar. Does anyone have any good recipes or websites with recipes for low sugar sweet potato recipes?

    I love the taste and the health benefits, but I need more variety.

    Answer:-umm this one is with substitute sugar

    3 lbs sweet potatoes or yams (try to find ones that are about the same size)
    1½ cups pecan pieces
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon pepper
    5 Tablespoons butter
    1 egg
    Sugar substitute

    1. Poke the sweet potatoes/yams several times with a sharp knife and roast at 400 F. until soft - about 45-60 minutes depending upon the size.

    2. Make the topping - pulse 1 cup of the pecans in food processor or blender until it is ground into a meal.

    Add about 1/4 cup worth sugar substitute, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of salt, and 2 Tablespoons of the butter and process until blended. Mix the rest of the pecan pieces in by hand.
    3. Let the sweet potatoes cool for 10-15 minutes. Split them and remove the pulp. Put them into the food processor or blender (no need to wash between topping and sweet potatoes) and process with the rest of the butter (3 Tablespoons). Mashing with a potato masher is also fine, but the texture will be somewhat smoother if you blend/process. Add the rest of the seasonings - (1 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, salt, and black pepper). The amount of sweetener you add will be up to your taste and the sweetness of the yams. When the seasonings are to your taste, and the egg and blend.

    4. Put sweet potato in buttered baking dish and sprinkle pecan topping over the top. Bake at 375 F. until the topping is browned.

    4 medium sweet potatoes(approx 1 lb)
    1/2 tsp grated orange peel
    1/2 cup orange juice
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    2 dash angostura bitters

    Boil potatoes until tender. Remove skins. Mash pulp with a potato
    masher or electric mixer. Add remaining ingredients and whip until
    fluffy. Pace in a 1 quart ungreased casserole. Cover and bake at 350
    degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Question:-Are there any sweet potato pie recipes that dont call for milk or cream?
    My Grandmother used to make sweet potato pies without milk or cream. She was an old Southern woman that never measured or wrote down anything she knew by heart. I never got the chance to write the recipe down before she past away. I want to bake one for the upcoming holiday. Please help!

    Answer:-Though I don't have an exact recipe for you, I would suggest baking the sweet potatoes, rather than boiling them. Their flavor is much more rich when baked.

    Or, you could do as I have done before, and it tastes dynamite!! Make candied sweet potatoes, and once they are fully cooked, mash them (or use the blender/mixer) and pour into pie crusts and bake.

    Here's a recipe for those, adjust it as you may need for a smaller batch.

    3 pounds sweet potatoes or yams--peeled and cubed
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 sticks sweet butter, cubed
    vanilla flavoring

  • Question:-EASY sweet potato recipes for the anti-cook?

    Answer:-I made sweet potato hash browns and they were awesome, I shredded the potatoes like regular potatoes. I put some olive oil and butter in my pan, so the butter would not burn so fast. I added the sweet potatoes, a little salt, pepper, cayenne and some brown sugar. Let them cook till brown on one side, then flip. They get real brown and the crust is kinda chewy. My boyfriend loved them and he isn'at crazy about sweet potatoes. You can also make sweet potato fries. I have not made them, but had them at a restaurant and they were wonderful.
