Ingredients

6
lb dark-orange sweet potatoes (9 large or 12 medium)
8
oz bacon (8 to 10 slices)
1/4
cup Progresso® panko crispy bread crumbs or Progresso® plain bread crumbs
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1/2
cup sour cream
1/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with fork. Place in pan. Bake about 1 hour 15 minutes or until tender. Cool 10 minutes. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and cut out any eyes or dark spots.
  • 2 Meanwhile, cook bacon as desired until crisp; chop. In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon butter; set aside.
  • 3 In large bowl, mash potatoes with potato masher. Stir in chopped bacon, sour cream, 1/4 cup butter, the onions, salt and pepper until well blended. Spread mixture in baking dish, or form individual servings in dish with 1/2-cup ice cream scoop or measuring cup. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over top.
  • 4 Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated and bread crumbs just begin to brown.
