Sweet Potatoes With Meringue

Yield 10 to 12 servings


  • 4 medium-size sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled, and mashed (about 3 cups)
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sherry

How to Make It

  1. Combine mashed potatoes, egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, butter, milk, salt, and sherry; mix well. Spoon mixture into a greased 9- inch pie plate. Make a well in the center of mixture; smooth edges with a spatula.

  2. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

  3. Using a decorator bag and a medium-size tip, fill well with meringue, and make dollops around top of sweet potato mixture. Bake at 325° for 15 minutes or until the meringue is lightly browned.
