DIRECTIONS

  • Cook sweet potatoes at 450 for about 1 hour or until soft.
  • While potatoes are baking, CARAMELIZE ONIONS:
  • Stirring occasionally, sautee onions, shallot and garlic in 1-2T butter and 1-2T olive oil over medium low heat for about 10-15 minutes or until onions are very soft. (Don't let the garlic burn or it will be very bitter.).
  • Add balsamic vinegar and scrape up any bits that may have formed from caramelized onions.
  • Set aside.
  • Carefully peel and mash baked sweet potatoes(we use a whisk).
  • After tasting, Add 2 tablespoons butter, milk, salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Taste and adjust ingredients.
  • Place sweet potatoes in an 8x8 casserole or a loaf pan and top with balsamic onions.
  • Bake, covered, at 350 for 15-20 minutes. (Increase bake time if casserole is coming from the fridge).
  • Top with crumbled bacon and asiago and bake uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  • Top with green onions and serve.
