Brûléed Mashed Sweet Potatoes

"Borrowing from the classic dessert crème brûlée, this dish has a hard candy topping, a crisp contrast to the creamy sweet potatoes. Cooking time does not include cooking sweet potatoes."

    "This is what the standard should be for sweet potatoes" is what my DH said. This is a fantastic recipe! The crunchy topping is a nice twist to plain mashed sweet potatoes. Thanks for posting such creativity!

    I made this dish for Mothers Day and it came out great! The only thing I must give as a suggestion is make sure the sweet potatoes are mashed really well! I had a few lumps.

    With my Diabetic Mom visiting for the holidays I was looking for a healther version of her FAVORITE holiday dish, "Candied Sweet Potatoes" and this was PERFECT. Everyone loved it, including Mom and even those who don't like the sweeter version. It was easy and a big hit, it'll be a regular at our home. Mom even took the recipe home with her.
