  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Chop into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Add to a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until potatoes are very tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  4. Return sweet potatoes to pot. Add milk, cinnamon, or nutmeg. Mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
  5. Spray large pan with cooking spray. Add chopped onion and bell pepper and cook over medium-high heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add meat and thyme, cooking until done, about 5 more minutes.
  6. Add vegetables, beef broth, and cornstarch, stirring to combine. Cook a few minutes until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat.
  7. Add beef mixture into an 8- or 9-inch baking dish. Spread the sweet potatoes evenly on top of the beef and vegetables. Cook in oven until entirely heated, about 15 minutes.

Additional Tips

Cooking Tips: 1 (14.4 oz.) bag of frozen pepper stir-fry can be substituted for the fresh onion and pepper.

Keep it Healthy: Sweet potatoes are chock full of minerals and vitamins, making them a fabulous and healthy starch alternative.

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Double the recipe for the mashed sweet potatoes and serve as a side for the next dinner.
