Quick healthy dessert

Who loves sweet potatoes?  If you've read my blog, it's obvious that I do.  One night I wanted to make myself a healthy dessert.  I had a sweet potato in my cabinet, so I decided to make a mini sweet potato casserole. First, I pricked holes in the sweet potato using a fork and microwaved it until a fork would easy go into the potato.  Then, I peeled it and mashed it with an egg and a little skim milk. Some people think of eggs as unhealthy, but I like to think of them as a little extra protein.

Then I poured the mixture into an oven-proof baking dish and topped it with chopped pecans and some brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, and voila, you have yourself a delicious dessert.
