In preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, I am going to provide you with a great light and clean version of baked mashed sweet potatoes. Mine do not have any sugar or marshmallows, so you can save your calories on something else! You can make them ahead and reheat. So, go out, buy the ingredients, and get cookin’!
5 Medium Sweet Potatoes
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
Juice of 2 Oranges
Grated Zest of 2 Oranges
1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425
Wash, dry, and pierce sweet potatoes
Bake in oven for approximately one hour or until soft to touch
Remove potatoes and let cool for 10 minutes
While still warm, split potatoes and scoop potatoes into a large bowl
Mash the potatoes
Add the remaining ingredients and mix until incorporated
Cover with foil to keep warm until ready to serve or put in a greased oven proof baking dish and refrigerate
When ready to serve heat in a 350 degree oven until warm
Serve and enjoy!!
