Melted butter seasoned with fresh sage, ground cinnamon, grated nutmeg and brown sugar give a flavor boost to these mashed sweet potatoes. Drizzle with the maple-pecan topping for a sweet crunch.

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 Tbs. (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbs. thinly sliced fresh sage
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans

Directions:

Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot, add water to cover by 3 inches and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and gently cook the potatoes until they are tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well in a colander. 



Fit a food mill with the disk with the smallest holes, set over the pot and pass the sweet potatoes through in batches.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sage, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Pour the butter mixture over the sweet potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and stir until incorporated. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a serving bowl and cover loosely with aluminum foil.

In another small saucepan over medium heat, combine the maple syrup and pecans and heat until just warmed through. Transfer to a small serving bowl. Serve the mashed sweet potatoes immediately and pass the maple-pecan drizzle alongside. Serves 6 to 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Wonderful! Loved, loved, loved and turned out to be everyone's favorite this Thanksgiving. Uniquely flavorful and sweeter (but not too sweet) than the recipe would otherwise suggest. The maple syrup topping, although not required, is a nice addition. Nothing needs to be changed -- great as it is! This recipe is sure to become a tradition from this year forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Sweet Potatoes Ever I wanted to make something different this year for Thanksgiving, as my family typically does not make sweet potatoes. Everyone was very hesitant to try escpecially because of the pecans. However, it was the ONLY dish that dissappeared durning dinner! Everyone kept going back for more! I was asked for the recipe by three differnt guests. I was very happy that everyone enjoyed it, but not happy that I didn't have any left overs for the day after! ;) I will definitely make this year after year! Thank you for a wonderful recipe! Oh one thing I forgot to mention - I did not use maple syrup with this because I did not have any. I used honey instead and it worked out just as well.
