This was a fantastic side dish for our Thanksgiving feast. I doesn't make a huge bowl full, but we found it to be the perfect amount. I only used 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, but I could have used a little more. I thought there was too much butter however. 1/4 cup would have been plenty. This recipe is from The Castle, Natchez, Mississippi and featured recently in an article in Taste of the South.

This is REALLY good!! I didn't use as much butter and used no cream. The combination of sweet from the potato and hot from the cayenne pepper is fabulous!
