Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

Topped with Caramelized Bananas


3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes

2 teaspoons butter

1 cup chicken stock

Salt and pepper

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

2 large bananas, thinly sliced on an angle

1/4 cup dark brown sugar for top

1/4 cup dark brown sugar for inside


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and roast until tender, about 1 hour. Remove from heat and let cool until cool enough to handle. (Keep oven at 350 degrees F). Peel and mash sweet potatoes in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the butter, stock, salt, pepper, and cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Transfer to a casserole dish.

Cover the surface of the potatoes with the banana slices by laying them on top, slightly overlapping in concentric circles. Sprinkle the other 1/4 cup of brown sugar evenly over the top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is carmelized.
