Wow. So, so, so delicious. I realize I am tooting my own horn here, but really, this dish is a winner.  The sweet potatoes are smooth and light thanks to being passed through a potato ricer, the browned butter gives it a wonderful, rich nuttiness, and the crisped brown sugar on top elevates it to a dessert-like decadence.
