My family isn't a fan of sweet potatoes or yams, but this is one sweet potato recipe that most of them will usually eat. And it's a nice change of pace from the candied yams with marshmallows that we usually have for Thanksgiving, and its light texture makes it a little more palatable than the sweeter "candied" version my family doesn't care for.

How to Make Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Hazelnut Topping

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 3-quart baking with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Combine first 9 ingredients [brown sugar to hazelnut liqueur] in a large bowl, and mash well until smooth.

    NOTE: If you use fresh sweet potatoes instead of canned, you'll have to cook them first, drain them, and then add them to the mixture to mash. Let the mixture cool first before proceeding to the next step, or it will partially cook the egg whites.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into the mashed sweet potatoes. Spoon the mixture into prepared baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the hazelnuts with the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cut in the butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the sweet potatoes.
  5. Bake at 400° for about 25 minutes or until the streusel topping is lightly browned.
