Maple Infused Sweet Potato Mash


Happy Monday Everyone!

If you are new to the Baby Boy Bakery...I'll let you in on a not so secret secret. Each Monday I post a yummy recipe, in which most cases you can mash up for your baby as well as keep whole and delish for the rest of your family.

I started this so I wouldn't be making two separate meals {Example: One for Dan and I and one for our son}. I also have found that having my son eat whatever I am serving has heightened his sense of taste and he is on the right track of becoming a "good eater".

Though I am sure once he is two and has a mind of his own I'll find us on the "chicken nugget and ketchup only" path. Ahhh the beauty of toddler-hood....I can't wait.

Anyways.....this week I have a house hold favorite! One you could even make for holiday dinner this year. Listen up, cuz it is a goodie! And goes AMAZING with chicken or pork chops.

Maple Infused Sweet Potato Mash

What You Need

`6 small organic sweet potatoes

`3 tbs organic olive oil

`1/2 tsp salt

`1/2 tsp crushed dried organic rosemary

`3 tbs organic 100% maple syrup

`2 tbs organic brown sugar


`Poke holes in the sweet potatoes with a fork

`On a foil lined sheet pan spread potatoes and rub the olive oil and rosemary all over.

`Roast in the oven at 350 for about 35 min....or until you can stick a fork in the potatoes and it goes in an out with no effort. {Till they are nice and soft}

`Let the potatoes cool enough till you can handle them. Now, I like to cut them up and toss them into the blender. Blend until it is a mashed like consistency.

`But if potato skins are not your bag, then scrape out the potato and toss the skins. BUT the skins hold all the essential vitamins potatoes give us.....Sorry I sound like my mother.

`With the smooth potato mash, place in a baking dish and drizzle the maple syrup and salt on the top. Give it a little mix. Sprinkle a teeny bit of brown sugar over the top and bake in the oven for about 10 min.

`Then enjoy!

Seriously guys the sweet and salty combo on these sweet potatoes is so goooood! Hope you dig it as much as we do!
