  1. Was larger than expected – definitely 2 servings at least. First time was wonderful second time it was a little dry but tastes really good. After making twice I think it’s important for the sweet potato to be really mashed fine – if it’s not soft like a mashed potato it’s a little chunky which can be okay for some.
