Yield

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 medium), peeled and quartered
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and American cheese

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes in saucepan; cover with water. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until tender; drain. Add milk and salt to potatoes; mash with potato masher until light and fluffy.
  2. Spray pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Mound potatoes in pie plate, forming mountain shape about 4 inches tall and 5 inches across at base. Leave 1-inch space between plate and potato mixture. Make deep hole in top of mountain.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Whip cream until soft peaks form; stir in cheese. Spoon whipped cream mixture into hole in mountain, allowing excess to run down sides. Bake about 20 minutes or until bubbling.

Tip

Gravy from a jar could be added for effect, as a moat around bottom or dripped onto sides.
