New Thanksgiving recipe!

I was watching Tyler Florence on Food Network last night, and I think this is a must-make recipe for Thanksgiving.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes and Bananas with Honey

Serves 10-12

5 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed

4 bananas, unpeeled

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/4 cup honey

Kosher salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375°.

Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork, put them in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes. Toss the bananas into the pan and continue roasting for 10-15 minutes, until both the bananas and potatoes are very soft. Remove the pan from the oven but don’t turn the oven off.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into a large mixing bowl. Peel the bananas and add them to the bowl along with 1 stick of the butter, and the honey. Season with salt and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until everything is well combined and the mixture is fluffy. Spoon into an oven-proof serving bowl and smooth the top.

In a separate mixing bowl, use your fingers to rub together the remaining stick of butter, the brown sugar, flour, and pecans until the mixture is the consistency of coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the sweet potatoes and return to the oven. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the crumbs are golden. Serve hot.
