5 pounds sweet potatoes
½ cup (1 stick) margarine, softened
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons oil
¾ pound shallots, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake sweet potatoes for about 45 minutes – or until soft. Let cool slightly and scoop out flesh. Add margarine and cinnamon and beat until smooth and fluffy. Add salt and pepper to taste. In the meantime, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté shallots until crisp. Drain on paper towels and scatter atop sweet potatoes.
