Bruleed Sweet Potatoes

2 lbs sweet potatoes
1 cup brown sugar – divided
1 stick butter – divided, plus some more to butter the baking dish
2 tablespoons olive oil (or other vegetable oil)
1/3 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. Rub the oil all over the sweet potatoes and place on a foil lined baking sheet.

 Roast for one hour.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool enough to peel the skins off.

Heat ¾ stick of butter and cream in a small sauce pan over medium low heat until barely simmering and butter is melted.

Rice the sweet potatoes into a mixing bowl.

Add ¾ cup of brown sugar to the sweet potatoes and stir to combine.

Add the simmering cream/butter to the potatoes and stir to combine.

Set oven to broil.

Butter the baking dish and pour the sweet potatoes into the dish.

Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of sugar over the potatoes. And place under the broiler. Want to melt the brown sugar on top to caramelized and bubbly, at least 2 minutes. Could go longer, like 20 minutes, to form a crispy caramel on top.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.
