This is pretty much how I use up left over pumpkin too… I put these in the microwave for 10 minutes instead of baking in the oven.
Whipped Maple Sweet Potatoes
3 lb red garnet sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
Additional maple-flavored syrup, if desired
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Pierce sweet potatoes with fork. Place potatoes in 9-inch square pan. Cover with foil; bake about 1 hour 15 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced with a knife. 2. Slip off potato skins. In large bowl, beat potatoes with electric mixer on medium speed until no lumps remain. Add 2 tablespoons syrup, the butter, salt and desired amount of cinnamon. Continue beating until potatoes are light and fluffy. Drizzle with additional syrup. 1 Serving: Calories 180 (Calories from Fat 35); Total Fat 4g (Saturated Fat 2 1/2g, Trans Fat 0g); Cholesterol 10mg; Sodium 280mg; Total Carbohydrate 34g (Dietary Fiber 5
