  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Bake for 1 hour or until tender; reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  3. Scoop potato flesh out of skins and place into a mixing bowl. Slowly beat in the butter and cardamom. Whip until potatoes are smooth and fluffy; season with salt and white pepper. Keep warm in oven.
  4. In a large deep skillet, heat 1 inch of oil until shimmering. Add 1/2 of the shallots to oil and fry until crisp. Transfer the shallots, using a slotted spoon, to a paper towel; season with salt. Repeat the process until all the shallots are fried. Garnish top of potatoes with shallots.

delicious!!! make extra shallots because people hog them - it was the only dish at thanksgiving that was completely gone.

I liked the combination of flavors in this recipe. I am a fan of cardamon. However, I would simply fork mash the Sweets next time to give them a little more texture.

These are fantastic! I didn't whip them, just used a masher. Everyone loved them and the deep fried shallots are a winner. These will become part of the rotation. Simple, different and oh so sav...

These weren't bad. I love sweet potatoes and love, love, love cardamom, and while they went nicely together, there was a little too much cardamom and my husband kept saying they tasted dessert-...

This was extremely good. The cardamom gave it just enough extra flavor that really made these not just simple to make, but really made it look like I had gone to more trouble than I had. I even...
