We’re not sure how this traditional southern dish made it to a New England kitchen, but we’re glad it did!

2 cups peeled and diced sweet potatoes
1 carton (4 ounces) egg substitute (or 2 eggs)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
dash of salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

Boil the sweet potatoes in water to cover until tender. Drain and mash.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. While the potatoes are still hot, add the egg substitute, vanilla, sugar, margarine, salt, milk, and nutmeg and mix well. Pour into the pie shell. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
