New Sweet Potato Casseroles
- In a Dutch oven cook potatoes, covered, in enough boiling salted water to cover for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender; drain and return to pan.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slightly mash potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in sugar, butter, milk, eggs, lemon juice, and, if desired, one of the stir-ins; stir until well combined. Transfer sweet potato mixture to a greased 3-quart rectangular baking dish. If desired, top with one of the toppings.
- Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through. Makes 8 to 12 servings.
