Whipped Sweet Potatoes

A few years a go when we lived in Logan, we ate at Hamilton's Restaurant several times. If any of you are familiar with Hamilton's, you'll know of their famous whipped sweet potatoes. They are so yummy! One of the times we were there, my friend asked the manager for the recipe and he gave both of us a copy. I can't believe I have waited this long to actually try it; I really love sweet potatoes. I made some adjustments in size for our family and ommitted some of the butter and sugar, which there seemed to be a lot of, and it didn't lack in flavor one bit becaue of it. This is an easy side dish to "whip" up and you can even use your leftover cans of yams from Thanksgiving or Christmas.

For the potatoes:
3 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

For the topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2-1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. cold butter, cut into tiny pieces

Peel and cube sweet potatoes. Put them in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Boil until tender. Drain; cool slightly. Put potates, sugar, butter and vanilla in mixing bowl with wire whisk attachment. Whip. Add egg and whip to combine. Layer potato mixture in a baking pan. Combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the potatoes. Dot with little pieces of cold butter. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. About 6 servings.

Serve with Cider-Roasted Chicken
