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.

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

Easy and yummy! I added a pinch of brown sugar, used fresh pears, and a pinch of cinnamon to add a little more sweetness. I cut down on the butter to about 1/4 cup. Husband loved it!

This is very good which is amazing coming from someone who doesn't really care for sweet potatoes. My husband said "I would like to have this again."
