Serves:

Add an unusual twist to a traditional holiday favorite by mashing in chopped crystallized ginger. So simple and yet very exotic.

Ingredients: 

* 5 lbs. Sweet Potatoes or Yams
* 1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil, plus 1/2 tsp. for preparing pan
* 1 cup Smart Bran Cereal
* 1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar, plus more to taste
* 1 - 1/4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
* 1 tsp. Salt, or to taste
* 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg, grated
* 1/4 cup Crystallized Ginger, chopped or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
* 3/4 cup Chopped Walnut or Pecans, toasted

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Roast sweet potatoes until easily pierced with a fork, 40 to 60 minutes, depending on size. Reduce oven temperature to 375F.
2. Meanwhile, brush 1/2 teaspoon oil on an 11" x 7" rectangular baking pan.
3. In a small bowl, toss cereal with remaining tablespoon of oil.
4. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon over cereal. Toss to coat.
5. When the potatoes are done and cool enough to handle, remove and discard skins. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle on remaining brown sugar and cinnamon plus salt, nutmeg, and ginger. Mash well, taking care to distribute spices. Add more brown sugar, if needed. Stir in walnuts.
6. Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Distribute seasoned cereal on top.
7. Bake until heated throughout, about 15 minutes.
