  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

    Heat oven to 400°F. Toss sweet potatoes with oil. Place in single layer on 15x10x1-inch pan.
  • 2
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until tender, stirring after 10 minutes. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 3
    Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat eggs, melted butter and milk with whisk until well blended. Add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, sea salt and pepper; stir with spoon just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in sweet potatoes, kale and cheeses. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full.
  • 4
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.

  • Look for baby kale in the salad section of the produce department. If you can't find baby kale, use baby spinach instead.
  • Sweet potatoes pack a powerful vitamin A punch. What a delicious way to get your vitamins!
