I love sweet potatoes! I just dug mine up out of the pots I grow them in the other day. The recipes sound fantastic. Here's one I make for the luau I do for my husband Gary's family every year. I took a recipe I found and made it better(I think.) Terry, this goes with Meat On A Stick!

Aloha Sweet Potatoes

  • 4-5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • pinch salt
  • shredded coconut

Peel, cube, and boil sweet potatoes until done. Drain well. Add all the ingredients except the shredded coconut and mix together like making regular mashed potatoes. Add a touch more coconut milk if it seems too stiff. Put into a casserole dish and keep warm in oven until serving time. Or make the day before and reheat in oven. Sprinkle with shredded coconut right before serving.(The shredded coconut will absorb the color of the potatoes if topped ahead of time. Nothing is wrong with that; it just doesn't look as pretty.)
