photo by:kraft
Here's our version of the perennial favorite: sweet potatoes flavored with brown sugar and cream cheese, baked in a casserole until golden brown.
25 min
45 min
8 servings, 3/4 cup each

What You Need

lb.  sweet potatoes (about 4 large), peeled, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
cup  chicken broth
oz.  (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
tsp.  ground nutmeg
 RITZ Crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
cup  chopped PLANTERS Pecans
cup  packed brown sugar
Tbsp.  butter, melted

Make It

HEAT oven to 375ºF.

BRING potatoes to boil in broth in large covered saucepan on high heat; simmer on medium heat 12 min. or until potatoes are tender. Uncover; simmer 1 to 2 min. or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese and nutmeg. Mash with potato masher until potatoes are light and fluffy. Spoon into 1-1/2-qt. casserole.

MIX remaining ingredients; sprinkle over potato mixture.

BAKE 20 min. or until potato mixture is heated through and topping is golden brown.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Prepare using fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and Reduced Fat RITZ Crackers.
Use Your Electric Mixer
If using a mixer to mash the potatoes, drain the cooked potatoes, then add cream cheese and nutmeg. Beat 1 min. or until potato mixture is smooth and well blended. If cooking the potatoes in a nonstick pan, transfer the potatoes to a bowl before beating to protect the nonstick surface of the pan.
How to Make RITZ Cracker Crumbs
To easily crush RITZ Crackers into crumbs, process the crackers in a food processor or blender. You can also crush RITZ Crackers by hand by placing the crackers in a resealable plastic bag and rolling across them with a rolling pin. For each 1/3 cup of crumbs, you will need about 10 RITZ Crackers.
