Recipe from Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer Recipes

This recipe was really pretty simple. However, I felt a little lost when the first ingredient said, Sweet Potatoes, cooked and peeled. I thought, what, no instructions for that part?! So I racked my brain and came up with a simple solution. Peel, cube, and boil just like I was going to make mashed potatoes! Worked perfectly! We were impressed with the outcome, as the puff was lighter in texture than a traditional sweet potato casserole. Plus the topping (which Katie normally dislikes) wasn’t as nutty since it had corn flakes in it. It made a nice, needed crunch on top.

We picked the recipe because we had sweet potatoes that we wanted to try something new with, and they happened to coincide nicely with this project.  Since it came from the Kitchen Aid mixer cookbook, the recipe is built around that particular appliance, but it would be just as easy to make with a hand mixer or potato masher.

Thanks and enjoy!
