Whipped Sweet Potatoes and Bananas with Honey

This is a recipe by Tyler Florence...........

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._35146,00.html

I made it for Thanksgiving and it was such a hit! Its definetely a keeper.

I messed up.....the recipe called for 2 sticks of unsalted butter.....one was to be added to the potato and bananas and the other to the topping.

What I did was mucked up and added the full 2 sticks to the potato & bananas......oh and I used margarine (Imperial) vs. the unsalted butter.

I think the extra margarine was absolutely perfect and i have no plans to eliminate the extra next time......

Next time I plan on making 2 dishes of this as it went over so well and went so quickly.

I watched Tyler make this on TV and it looked so good. I am thrilled that you tried it Sizz because I have written this down to try, but getting your first hand experience makes me wat to do it even sooner.

Your very welcome GB. My brother saw it on t.v. too and was thinking about making it and was so happy to see that I had........... I can't tell you how much he and the rest of us truely enjoyed it.

I do want to try it with butternut squash in the future too.....I think it'd be just as good.

I made Tyler's sweet potato/banana dish, too, for Thanksgiving. It gets a two thumbs up from both Buck and me. Delicious. Wonderful combination of flavors.

I think when I make it again, I'll "kick it up a notch" by adding some rum.

That is another great suggestion Katie. Rum would really compliment those flavors!

Just what you...I have in the cabinet. I don't think it would be necessary to go out and buy a costly bottle of rum. Only an inexpensive utilitarian kind.
