Butter-Pecan Mashed Sweet Potatoes

    Cooking potatoes in microwave for 8 minutes isn't long enough to cook them. Makes me wonder whether the author actually made this recipe or if their microwave was that much stronger.

    Easy & good. Made the pecan version to directions and liked the nutty browned butter flavor, nice change from what we usually do with yams. (plus we use these simple CL recipes for portion control) Served with Bon Appetit's "special Sunday roast chicken."

    Loved it! I did add maple syrup to taste, which made the dish just a little sweeter.

    Butter Pecan (original recipe): Very nice! I tried peeling the potatoes (instead of scooping out mashed pulp), but scooping out the pulp definitely gives you a softer texture. Sometimes you may need to microwave the potatoes longer, but it's worth it. A wonderful, easy side dish.
