When I was coming up with the meal plan for thanksgiving I new that I wanted to try mashed sweet potatoes. While searching for a tasty recipe for mashed sweet potatoes I came across a recipe with maple syrup in it. Given that I was going to have maple syrup in the main course I thought it would be good to have it in the potatoes as well. These mashed sweet potatoes were pretty good. I was a bit worried that they might be too sweet but they were just about right.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Syrup
- 1 sweet potato

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- salt and pepper to taste
- Bake the potato in a preheated 400F oven until soft, about 1 to 1.5 hours.
- Cut the potato open and scoop out the insides.
- Add the butter, syrup, salt and pepper to the potatoes and mash.
