Boil the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water. Drain, return to the pan and stir over medium heat until excess moisture evaporates, about 5 minutes. Add the butter and syrup and mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large sauté pan, heat the oil. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.

Transfer sausage mixture to a buttered deep pie dish. Spoon mashed sweet potatoes over the sausage mixture, using a spoon to smooth the top. Bake until heated through and potatoes begin to brown around edges, about 45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
