Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 package cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt

Boil the potatoes until tender and drain.  Preheat the oven to 350.  Spray a square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Transfer the cooked potatoes to a large mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients.  Beat until smooth and creamy.  Spread evenly in the baking dish.  Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

These are delicious just like this, or before baking, sprinkle with a mixture of 2 tablespoons softened butter, 1/4 cup self-rising flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.  Yummy!
