Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub sweet potatoes thoroughly and prick with a fork. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, for browned butter, melt butter over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. Cook, swirling pan occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Carefully halve potatoes and scoop out pulp. Mash to desired consistency in a large mixing bowl. Stir mashed potatoes, canned pears and sage into the browned butter in saucepan. Cook and stir until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Delicious and easy! I used fresh pears, 1/4 cup of butter, and two very large yams! Yum!

I loved the flavor combination of sweet potato, pear and sage. I made this for 3 people. Rather than using canned pears, I sauteed a fresh, diced pear in ~ 1 Tbsp butter. The juice that is released is enough to moisten the mashed sweet potatoes so not as much butter is needed.

Absolutely delicious. Best sweet potato recipe I've tried. I'm really surprised there aren't more reviews and almost didn't try because of that. I found that potatoes didn't need to be scooped , I just held hot potato with a fork and peeled the skin right off with a knife. Sweet potato lovers must try this
