  1. Wash and peal all Sweat Potatoes.
    2 potatoes for boiling.
    2 potatoes for baking.
  2. Slice 2 potatoes approx. 1/4in to 1/2in rounds.

    Lightly brush each slice with melted butter.
    Sprinkle with Vanilla Sugar and Cinnamon.
  4. Bake @ 350 degrees until browned and tender.
    (about 20 min)

    Save some of the remaining liquid for mashing mixture.

    Vanilla Sugar, Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup & Vanilla in mixing bowl with the mashed potatoes.
    Stir together until evenly mixed. Add what ever is needed for extra taste preference.
  9. Once you have the slices baked and the boiled potatoes mashed. Place a layer of the sliced potatoes at the bottom and sides of the casserole dish as a liner and a border.
  10. Fill casserole dish with the mashed mixture leaving enough room for the top layer.
  11. Finally, place baked slices on top.
    Put back in the oven to warm.
    Approx 10 min.
