3 sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
Salt and pepper, to taste (optional - if you prefer sweet to savory, sprinkle with brown sugar)
Bake the potatoes 400 degrees for about an hour, or until soft. If you are in a rush, you can boil these without losing too much flavor.
Slice the potatoes open and scoop out the insides. Place in a bowl and add butter and preferred seasoning(s). Mash the potatoes in the bowl, or use a hand mixer.
Warm the syrup in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds. When ready to serve, drizzle warm maple syrup over the top of the potatoes. If you are using the brown sugar, you can sprinkle a bit over the top for crunch. I also considered adding a few mini-marshmallows as a garnish but I didn't have any on hand. Just an idea for you.... Enjoy!
