Sweet Potato Fluff is a delicious velvety creamy textured side dish perfect for a gathering of friends and family. It can also be prepared the day before and freshly baked the day of the party or event. It goes well with poultry, beef, pork or lamb and adds a beautiful color to your table and plate. I served it with grilled London broil, fresh Jersey sweet corn-on-the-cob, and salad. Everyone verbally loved the fluff, wanted the recipe as well as rated it 5 Stars. Rating recipes is a tradition in our house, and the majority rules. In addition, no one touches the food before photos are taken.

Ingredients:

  • 6-7 small sweet potatoes (approximately 7″x2.5″)
