Here's an upscale version of mashed sweet potatoes. The yogurt adds creaminess and a touch of sweetness, and you'll love the crunchy granola topping. It also couldn't be easier to make. The potatoes are first roasted in the oven, which takes 40–60 minutes. Add the yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, and salt and whip it together with a mixer to incorporate all of the ingredients. Transfer the potato mixture to a baking dish, top with the granola, and let it bake in the oven until browned and heated through. Then it's ready to serve! It'll take a couple of hours to put together, but the prep time is mostly hands-off, and the end result is well worth it.
