Served as an accompaniment or as a main course, this utterly irresistible creamy sweet potato dish may have very few ingredients but is oozing with flavour. If you’ve got a big crowd at Christmas, why not try incorporating this recipe into your menu, either as an exciting and luxurious alternative to the traditional roast potatoes or as well as them
