side dish; mashed sweet potatoes

for the crumble:
- dark brown sugar
- nutmeg
- cinnamon
- lemon juice or orange juice

for the mashed sweet potato itself:
- 2 or 3 sweet potatoes
- 1/2 of butter or 2 scoops of butter substitute

This whole recipe will and can be changed accordingly to how many guests you're making it for.

We'll begin with the crumble, start with 1 or 2 cups of dark brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 or 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. More if you'd prefer. Then add a teaspoon of lemon juice or orange juice; Or a 1/2 teaspoon of each. Mix it up so that you get a crumbly mixture and them let it sit while you work on the sweet potatoes. Check on it now and then, mixing it when you do.

Now shave the skin off of all the sweet potatoes and put them to boil; Don't let them boil too long or they'll be mush in the water. While they boil get yourself a bowl and when they're ready mash them in the bowl; Add a bit of the crumble, butter and the juices as well. Continue to mash.

Sprinkle some of the crumble all over the bottom of a Pam or cooking sprayed casserole dish. Then put the now mashed sweet potato into the casserole dish and sprinkle the rest of the crumble all over the top and pop it in the oven on low broil.

Watch until the crumble melts a bit and take out to serve.

This isn't quite a tip, but this is a wonderful dish for a Thanksgiving dinner.
