Expert Tips

To toast pecans, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.

To make ahead of time, cover and refrigerate mashed sweet potatoes up to 24 hours, then reheat in the microwave oven or a slow cooker on Low heat setting until warm.
