Sweet Potato and cornbread mashup

You know what I love?  Jiffy cornbread mix. When I was a kid I made this with my mom all the time.  Except she would add an extra egg and half a cup of sugar and turn it into a cornbread cake.  Food purists, you have every right to your opinion and I know what you think about Jiffy.  That’s why you have your blogs and I have mine.  

One chilly fall day I stood in front of the pantry waiting for some magical dinner fairy to make dinner for me.  It didn’t happen.  Then my eyes fell on the Jiffy box and a few sweet potatoes.  Eureka!  I whipped up some mashed sweet potatoes, put it in a baking dish then poured Jiffy mix around it.  Ta-da! Sweet potato and cornbread mashup was born.  Show choirs have their pop song mashups.  I have perfect food combination mashups.
