Often the most favorite holiday side dishes are the simplest. This recipe combines roasted sweet potatoes with butter and maple syrup in the food processor with very little effort.

I prepared this simple, tasty recipe for Christmas dinner and followed the ingredients as prepared. It was a hit. Our friends and family loved it. In fact, I am whipping up this dish for my husband. Thanks Martha and crew.

I made this for the first time this morning and it was easy to make and the taste is delightful. It's creamy and mild and not too sweet. The only thing I would add is that the recipe suggests scooping the flesh from the potatoes. I found it much easier to lay the halved potatoes cut-side down and then lift the skin off. No need for any spoons or scooping :)

I love potato skins, and as the cook, I feel I get the best of all meals, taste testing, quality control etc. I would have one of the skins , hot, crispy and melting butter a little salt and pepper and in the mouth it goes. Then I would get rid of the rest of the skins. I love all sweet potato dishes even though where I am we call the orange one yams. They are all good.
