THANKSGIVING: Amaretto Mashed Sweet Potatoes

We were inspired by this dish from Harry & David to whip our own version of amaretto mashed sweet potatoes, a sophisticated take on the classic.

This dish can be made in advance without adding the garnish; reheated in the microwave, garnished and served.

If you like a touch of color and a bit more flavor complexity, some add minced parsley.

Preparation

Ingredients For 6 Servings

  • 2-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons Amaretto (almond liqueur) or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A few dashes ground ginger, to taste
  • A few dashes salt, or to taste
  • Ground pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnish: 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds or candied pecans
  • Optional garnish: fresh parsley, minced
  •
