Baked Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Here's an easy side dish to serve for Thanksgiving or with other roasted meats.   Baked Whipped Sweet Potatoes.

A sweet potato dish is a Thanksgiving tradition at my house.  I have kept two binders filled with recipes that I've cooked over the years for Thanksgiving.  I was going through my recipe binders a few weeks ago and came across this recipe.  I had emailed it to a friend who enjoyed the dish at Thanksgiving dinner. I laughed when I looked at the email address I used. It was my aol.com email address.  That's old.  Crazy how time flies.

I've taken this recipe and updated it a bit.  It's not a low calorie dish, but it's all right to splurge a little during the holidays.
