I had a can of sweet potatoes that already were in a sugar type syrup cooking on the stove when I thought, ""I should make mashed sweet potatoes, I bet I have what I need and it should be a cinch!"" So off I went to Google, and I found a couple other interesting recipes but did not have all the ingredients and also much more fat in them, this is when I found this recipe. It was perfect, only since I already had sugar in the potatoes I used only 1 TBLS of syrup and also they were a bit liquidy already so I also only used about 2 TBLS of 1% milk and I added some cinnamon generously as well as 50/50 butter, 1 TBLS to lighten it a bit. It was great!
