Sweet Potato Casserole
Makes: 10 servings
Total Cost: $$$$

Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger combined with vanilla extract are a delicious backdrop for sweet potatoes. Use canned sweet potatoes if you don't have whole sweet potatoes on hand. This recipe would be great for Thanksgiving.

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes (about 1 lb)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 can evaporated milk, nonfat (12 ounce)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger

Directions

1. Rinse sweet potatoes in cold running water and pierce with a fork.

2. Microwave sweet potatoes on full power until tender, about 15 minutes. Turn them half way during baking.

3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove skin from sweet potatoes and mash with hand beaters or food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.

4. Pour mixture in an 8 inch baking dish. Bake until casserole is firm in the center, about 40 minutes.

5. Remove pan from oven. Allow to stand for 5 minutes then cut into 10 squares.

6. Serve hot. Refrigerate leftovers.
