    Sweet Potatoes Georgian

    1) Peel four large sweet potatoes. Cut them into chunks, boil until soft. Mash with potato masher.

    2) Spread in 9"x9" casserole dish.

    3) Combine 1 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp molasses in a small pot over low heat. Drizzle over sweet potatoes.

    4) Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until browned on top.

    I did 1-3 yesterday and just put it in the fridge overnight; will do step 4 after the turkey is done this afternoon.

    I LOVE this one:

    Sweet Potato Casserole

    4 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes***
    1/2 to 3/4 cups granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/3 cup milk
    1/4 cup margarine or butter, melted

    Topping:
    2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup all purpose flour
    1/3 cup margarine or butter
    1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped pecans

    Combine sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, vanilla, milk, and melted butter. Beat with electric mixer until smooth. Spoon into greased 2 qt. baking dish.

    For topping, combine brown sugar, flour, butter and pecans. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

    ***You can peel and chop the potatoes and boil them, but I prefer to cook them in the oven, like baked potatoes, then peel and mash. The oven caramelizes the sugars in the sweet potatoes=delicious!!!

    I have slight variation on Midnightdream's mashed sweet potato recipe:
    Mashed sweet potato
    Bake the potatoes until soft
    remove peel
    mash
    add butter and a tiny bit of milk
    add black pepper if desired


    I add a generous amount (to taste) of Lawry's brand season salt instead of pepper.

    I just made the recipe that HCF posted ~ The Pioneer Woman is where I found it, but I'm sure it's an old standby. It's just so sugary good.
    That website also has a stuffing recipe that is outstanding, it uses a combination of corn bread and French bread. Mmmmm. One more hour and my bird is going in the oven. I can't wait for the house to smell good!

    So what is the difference?

    I get something I think the store calls "sweet potatoes" when they're on sale. These have very orange flesh.

    We always baked them in the oven (like baked potatoes), then each person skinned their own, mashed it up with a fork, and added butter, salt, pepper and whatever to taste (I like a bit of brown sugar as my 'whatever').

    Only thing I don't like about them is the "hair" (stringy fibery stuff that feels just like hair in the mouth) that's just under the skin by the ends.

    I just made a triple batch of this stuff (friends and family who swear they don't like sweet potatoes LOVE IT):

    Sweet Potato Crisp:
    1 40-oz can Yams, drained
    1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    Topping:
    2/3 cup chopped cranberries
    1 cup chopped apple
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 cup oats
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup margarine
    1/4 cup chopped pecans

    Beat cream cheese, yams, 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl until well-blended. Spoon into 1 1/2-qt casserole or 10x6 baking dish. Top with apples and cranberries.
    Stir together flour, oats and 1/2 cup sugar. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over fruit.
    Bake 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

    I'll make them just like regular mashed potatoes. Except I bake them first as opposed to boiling.

    Adding a little brown sugar is really tasty!

    I make something similar, only no milk, and maple syrup and fresh lemon juice instead.

    I'm so fond of the baked potatoes with real butter that there was no interest in any other 'recipes'. And i've read that yams are virtually unavailable in this country, so what you find in the grocery store is invariably sweet potatoes.

    My grandmothers recipe

    3 cups grated uncooked sweet potatoes
    4 eggs
    2 cups milk
    1/2 tsp each cinnamon and alspice
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1 1/2 cup brown sugar ( I use 1/2 light 1/2 dark)
    4 TBS butter

    Beat eggs lightly, add all other ingredients, mix well. Pour into butter baking dish, bake @ 325 for 30-40 min. Stirring occasionally. Let brown well.
    This is a side dish or desert. Grating the potatoes is the hardest part.

    Ooooh, I've had this one too, or one very similar, and it was delish! I like the difference in texture that the grating gives them!

    For another version, (I don't use oil, just butter the dish) add cumin and red pepper flakes with each layer, and blue cheese on top.

    Just made them again for Thanksgiving supper...
