Recipe of the Week - Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

           Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

½ cup margarine                              
2 lbs. yellow onions, thinly sliced           
4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed   
½ cup milk, lowfat
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/3 c. sour cream, light            

To caramelize the onions, in a large skillet heat ¼ c. of the margarine.  Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and set aside.  Cook the potatoes in a large pot, covered in lightly salted boiling water for 12 minutes or until tender; drain.  Add the remaining ¼ c. margarine to the pot and mash until smooth.  Stir in milk and sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in caramelized onions, reserving a few to garnish.  Cook and stir over low heat until heated through.  Transfer to serving dish and top with reserved onions. 

Make ahead:  Prepare potatoes through step 3 stirring into caramelized onions, but do not heat through.  Transfer to a 2 ½-3 quart casserole.  Cover and chill up to 24 hours.  Before serving, bake in a 325 oven for 55-60 minutes or until heated through.

This is one of my new favorite Thanksgiving recipes and will be on our table this year.   
Have a Blessed Day,
