Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes
with Crumb Topping

All you need:

  • 5 pounds sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar, divided

  • 4 oz apple juice (orange juice also works)

  • ¼ c. plus 2 T. unsalted butter, divided

  • ½ c. whole wheat flour

All you do

  1. Scrub
    sweet potatoes and pierce with fork in several places. Place in a single layer
    on a baking sheet. Bake at 375ºF for about 50 minutes, or until tender. Let
    stand about 20 minutes until cool enough to handle.

  2. Remove
    and discard skins. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup brown
    sugar, apple juice and 2 tablespoons butter. Mash with potato masher until slightly chunky
    or until desired consistency. Spoon into
    greased 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

  3. Combine
    flour and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a food processor and pulse until combined. Add
    1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces, and pulse until mixture resembles coarse
    meal. Sprinkle over potato mixture.

  4. Bake
    at 375ºF, covered, for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 25 minutes, or
    until crumb mixture is lightly browned.
