2 ½ pounds medium sweet potatoes, halved lengthwise
¼ cup sage leaves
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
1 shallot, chopped
⅔ cup Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayonnaise
2 ounces finely grated Parmesan (½ cup)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon Sir Kensington Spicy Brown Mustard
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
½ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- Heat oven to 350° with racks set in upper-third and lower-third of oven; line a baking sheet with foil. Place potatoes, cut side down on prepare sheet and prick skins with fork.

- Scoop flesh from potatoes and transfer to a blender; discard skins. Add cooked shallots, mayonnaise, Parmesan, egg, mustard, nutmeg and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper to blender with potatoes; blend until smooth.
- Transfer potato mixture to a shallow 1-quart baking dish, smooth top with a spatula then create some divots.
