Easy Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes

The addition of maple syrup makes these pleasently different. This dish was always popular when I catered holiday dinners. I put a small amount of syrup here but you may certainly add more if you like. I have also cut it down as I doubt that very many folks will be having 100 at their table *wink*. Prep time is actually the mixing time after the potatoes have been baked. Also this can be made the day before and gently reheated (covered) before serving. **EDIT** After several reviewers commenting that the maple flavor is faint I have upped the maple syrup content on Jan 18 "07, please feel free to add more after tasting it if you would like to.

I omitted the milk/half&half, and the result was still insanely delicious. Like dessert!

Did follow your "to taste" on the cinnamon and used less - and all was very good together!
