Step out of your usual sweet potato and marshmallow casserole and try this one made with pecans and wheat germ. Cook up an extra batch of the nuts and serve them for a snack or part of dessert.

Serves 8 to 10

Nuts

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 cup pecan halves

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/4 teaspoon salt

Sweet potatoes

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup fat-free milk

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

To prepare nuts, preheat oven to 275° F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Pour melted butter and maple syrup in medium bowl. Stir in pecans. Add wheat germ and salt and mix until combined.

Pour nuts onto the center of prepared cookie sheet and spread apart slightly. Bake for 15 minutes, stir nuts, and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool and set aside until ready to serve.

To prepare potatoes, increase oven temperature to 350° F. Place prepared potatoes in a pot; cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool 5 minutes.

Place potatoes in large bowl. Add melted butter, milk, maple syrup, salt and cinnamon. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Pour potatoes into 11 x 7-inch baking pan. Place in the oven and heat for 20 minutes or until desired temperature. Serve a dollop of potatoes with 2 tablespoons prepared nuts.
