Herbed Sweet Potato Cheese Puff
Unlike most sweet potato puff recipes, this one is savory, seasoned with herbs and lemon zest.
2 cups mashed North Carolina sweet potatoes
1 (8 ounce) package low fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Sour Cream, for garnish
Fresh sprig thyme or parsley, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)
- Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend with electric mixer at medium speed until well combined. Then beat on high until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Spoon mixture into a greased oven-to-table casserole dish.
- Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 2 to 3 minutes.
- Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of fresh thyme or parsley. Serve immediately.
Makes 8 servings.
