Recipe of the Week – Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions


Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

½ cup margarine
2 lbs. yellow onions, thinly sliced
4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt and pepper
1/3 c. sour cream

To caramelize the onions, in a large skillet heat ¼ c. of the margarine.  Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and set aside.  Cook the potatoes in a large pot, covered in lightly salted boiling water for 12 minutes or until tender; drain.  Add the remaining ¼ c. margarine to the pot and mash until smooth.  Stir in milk and sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in caramelized onions, reserving a few to garnish.  Cook and stir over low heat until heated through.  Transfer to serving dish and top with reserved onions.

Make ahead:  Prepare potatoes through step 3 stirring into caramelized onions, but do not heat through.  Transfer to a 2 ½-3 quart casserole.  Cover and chill up to 24 hours.  Before serving, bake in a 325 oven for 55-60 minutes or until heated through.

This recipe was given to me by a gal from Youth Haven Ranch here at Picacho Peak, AZ.


Have A Blessed Day,
