New Sweet Potato Casseroles
Ingredients
  • 4  pounds  sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup  butter, cut up
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 4  eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 - 4  tablespoons  lemon juice
  •  Stir-ins and/or Toppers (see below)
Directions

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through. Makes 8 to 12 servings.

From the Test KitchenStir-ins:
  • PEANUT BUTTER: For creaminess, add 1/2 cup.
  • ORANGE PEEL: For tart flavor, add 2 tablespoons.
  • RED CURRY PASTE: Add Indian spice and heat with 2 to 4 teaspoons.
  • PUMPKIN OR APPLE PIE SPICE: For harvest flavor, add 4 teaspoons spice plus 1 teaspoon ground black pepper.
Toppers:
  • PEANUTS AND COCONUT: Impart Far-Eastern flair with shredded coconut and chopped peanuts.
  • BACON AND ROSEMARY: Add smoky depth with crumbled cooked bacon tossed with snipped fresh rosemary.
  • ONION AND GARLIC: For earthy flavor, top with sauteed thinly sliced onion and garlic.
  • ALMONDS: Give a salty crunch with chopped smoked almonds.
  • PINEAPPLE AND BLUE CHEESE: Top with 1 cup pineapple chunks and 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles.
Test Kitchen Tip:
  • Suite your taste. Choose a stir in, choose a topper--they all work together or any one can be used alone.
