DIRECTIONS

  • Boil sweet potatoes in large saucepan of boiling salted water over medium-high heat 15-20 minutes or until very tender.
  • Drain sweet potatoes; return to saucepan.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until hot.
  • Add pancetta; cook 2-3 minutes or until pancetta begins to brown.
  • Add onion; cook 15-20 minutes or until onions are caramelized, stirring frequently.
  • Adjust heat, if necessary, to prevent onions from browning too quickly.
  • Add vinegar; stir, scraping up browned bits from bottom of skillet.
  • Over very low heat, mash sweet potatoes.
  • Add mascarpone, salt and pepper.
  • Stir in onion mixture.
  • *Noteyou can use bacon if you don't have pancetta available.
  • Just cook the bacon in a medium pot of boiling water 1 minute.
  • Drain and rinse until cool.
  • Blanching helps remove some of the smoky flavor from the bacon.
