Thanksgiving is a time of tradition, family, and, most importantly, delicious food. But who says we can’t spice things up a bit? This year, we’re bringing a new side dish to the table, and it’s sure to give “high” praise from your guests who enjoy a touch of green in their cuisine. Meet the “Baked & Confused Sweet Potato Mash-Up,” a dish that promises to be the talk of your festive feast.

Prep Time: A Quick Peel and Chop

Before the turkey takes center stage, you’ll want to get started on this savory side dish. With a mere 20 minutes of prep time, you’ll peel and cube some sweet potatoes, mince your garlic, and chop the rosemary. This is as simple as it gets, and it’s a fun activity that doesn’t require you to be a culinary wizard.

Cook Time: A Simple Boil and Sauté

Your sweet potatoes will take a dive into boiling water for about 20 minutes until they’re tender enough to mash. In the meantime, you’ll sauté garlic and rosemary in a pan for 3 to 5 minutes to unlock those aromatic flavors. Total cook time hovers around 33 to 35 minutes — just enough to get those flavors married without a lengthy commitment.

Total Time: Under an Hour

From start to finish, this “Baked & Confused Sweet Potato Mash-Up” won’t keep you in the kitchen for more than approximately 55 minutes. That’s less than an hour for a side dish that’s bound to be a new favorite!

Serving Size: Start Small, Enjoy Fully

Here’s the important part: this recipe should serve 6-8 people, making it perfect for a small gathering. Remember, with cannabis-infused dishes, less is more until you know how it affects you. Suggest starting with a 1/2 cup serving, especially for friends who may not partake regularly.

A “High”light of Your Thanksgiving Feast

Our “Baked & Confused Sweet Potato Mash-Up” isn’t just a clever name—it’s a promise of a good time, assuming everyone is on board with the plan. This dish is infused with cannabutter, and while that adds a fun twist, safety and consent are paramount.

The Name of the Game is Flavor (and Fun)

The name “Baked & Confused” gives a playful nod to the stoner classic movie, but it also emphasizes the state of bliss your taste buds will be in once they get a load of the sweet, savory, and herbaceous flavors. The rosemary and garlic offer a savory depth that balances the natural sweetness of the potatoes, with optional maple syrup to cater to the sweet tooth in the crowd.

Safety First, Second, and Always

Always inform your guests that the dish contains cannabis and discuss the potential effects, especially with those unfamiliar with edibles. It’s also worth testing your cannabutter ahead of time to get the dosing right because a peaceful nap is more the goal than a trip to the moon. And of course, ensure that cannabis consumption is legal in your area and all participants are of legal age.

This Thanksgiving, why not introduce a dish that will create memories (or at least a lot of laughter)? The “Baked & Confused Sweet Potato Mash-Up” is the perfect side to elevate your holiday feast. Enjoy the holiday, enjoy the food, and as always, consume responsibly!
