  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Pierce potatoes with fork. Place potatoes in 9-inch square pan. Cover; bake about 1 hour 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • 2
    Let potatoes stand about 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle; slip off skins and discard.
  • 3
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat maple syrup and butter to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Add potatoes to saucepan; mash potatoes with syrup mixture, using electric mixer on medium speed, until light and fluffy. Stir in salt and nutmeg. Sprinkle with pecans.

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.
