Sherried Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by echo echo

Sort of a pudding-like side dish. It takes about 5 medium sweet potatoes to equal 4 cups. If you use cooking sherry, omit the salt. If you want to get fancy, you can sprinkle the top with sliced almonds or finely chopped pecans during the last 5 minutes of baking. The preparation time does not include the time to initially cook the sweet potatoes--I do this in batches in the microwave, but have found the time to vary quite a bit depending on the microwave (my current one works much faster than my former one). I microwave them just until they're soft enough to mash.

I made 2 servings of this as a side dish. I left out the ginger and aded spicy garlic oil instead of the butter. OOPS, I just realized I forgot to put sugar in too! Anyway, this was a nice side dish that was not too sweet (probably because I forgot the sugar). The sherry was a nice addition.
