Brûléed Mashed Sweet Potatoes - 4 Points


Great for the holidays!


Borrowing from the classic dessert crème brûlée, this dish has a hard candy topping, a crisp contrast to the creamy sweet potatoes.


6 cups hot mashed sweet potatoes (about 4 pounds)

3/4 cup whole milk

3 tablespoons butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cooking spray

1/2 cup packed brown sugar


Preheat broiler.


Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Spoon potato mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar evenly over top. Broil 2 minutes or until sugar melts. Let stand until melted sugar hardens (about 5 minutes).


Yield: 14 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
