What To Do With Leftover Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes contain vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, iron, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. They are low on the glycemic index and the antioxidants help get rid of cancer-friendly free radicals. They are IMO much better for you than traditional white potatoes. I try to make them once a week in the Fall/Winter, usually mashed with maple syrup and grassfed butter. I make extra so that I can use the leftover mashed sweet potatoes into other yummy meals and treats. I think you would surprised how many different things you make with them. Even if a recipe calls for grated or chopped sweet potato it is easy enough to use precooked/mashed instead and it is of course very convenient.

Here are some that I found but feel free to add your own ideas/recipe links in the comments…
