Here’s the easy instructions on how to make these mashed sweet potatoes:

  1. Place potatoes on a foil-lined cookie sheet, and bake for approximately 1 hour (depending on size) or until soft. Remove from oven; allow to cool.
  2. Peel the cooled potatoes; place in a bowl. Add the melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and orange juice to the sweet potatoes. Beat together with a hand mixer until lumps are removed. If needed, add more orange juice.
  3. Heat on the stove or in the microwave; serve with a dab of butter and pomegrante seeds on top!
  4. Here’s an easy clean-up TIP:

When peeling the potatoes, place the skins back onto the foil on the baking sheet. Gather the foil and skins together and toss.

Then right before company comes, I quickly peel the potatoes, add the extra ingredients, mash, heat up, and serve!

A lovely touch for the holidays is to put melted butter in the middle, and sprinkle pomegrante seeds on top! So pretty!

What system or plan do you use to not “over-shop” during the holidays?
