This special side may not always be on the menu at your local Outback Steakhouse. If it's not, here's a clone recipe to satisfy your craving. The butter, sugar and spices added to the baked and mashed sweet potatoes make this dish great with salmon, chicken, turkey, and pork; and it rocks as a holiday feast side. It's so sweet and rich that it could double as pie filling. And just check out the amazing finishing touch: pecans, corn flakes and oats mixed with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon for a streusel-like crunchy topping, that you'll want to eat by the spoonful.

    • Instructions

      1. Bake sweet potatoes on a baking sheet for 60 to 70 minutes in a preheated 400 degrees F oven until soft. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice each one in half and scoop out the good stuff. Toss the skins. Use an electric mixer on high to mash the potatoes in a large bowl until smooth. You should have 4 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. Mix in the brown sugar, butter, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

      2. Make the topping by melting 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium sauce pan over medium/low heat. Add the pecans, oats, and corn flakes (coarsely crumble the corn flakes in a bowl or plastic bag before measuring), and stir often over heat for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is hot. Don't let the mixture get brown. Pour this mixture into a medium bowl. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and then stir the sugar into the nuts and cereal.

      3. When you are ready to serve mashed sweet potatoes, reheat the potatoes in a saucepan or in a microwave oven until hot. Spoon 3/4 cup to 1 cup serving onto a plate and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the topping.

      Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish.
