Apple Sweet potato Mash

As my first side dish in my recipe box, I begin with this yummy, comfy, side dish. I sometimes garnish this recipe with other things, spiced whipped cream or even candied apple slices, but it is also a dish that can stand alone it's so good!

3 to 4 pounds sweet potatoes
4 Tablespoons softened butter
3 Tablespoons cream
1 cup applesauce, preferably homemade
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
4 tablespoons sugar
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven 375.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork and place on baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes to an hour or until tender when pierced with fork. Remove from oven and cool.
  3. Cut open potatoes and scoop flesh into mixer bowl.
  4. Add cream and butter and beat until smooth.
  5. Add applesauce and ginger and beat again.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Transfer to a casserole dish and put in oven until heated through.
