Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I realized the other day that I have never made mashed sweet potatoes. I was making a delicious chicken recipe tonight and thought mashed sweet potatoes would be a perfect side dish. The potatoes cooked quickly and came together quite easily. I loved the buttery flavor and the touch of nutmeg. We all, kids included, loved these sweet potatoes.

How to Make Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Put the sweet potatoes in a large pot and add just enough cold water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.

Place milk, butter, sea salt & freshly cracked pepper, taste together in a glass bowl. Cook for 30 seconds in the microwave, or until warmed.

Drain and return the potatoes to the pot and place them back on the stove with the burner turned to low which dries up any excess water. Add the warmed milk mixture and mash with a hand masher or beater until smooth. Taste and add more salt or nutmeg if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Other than in a sweet dish, I’m not sure if I’ve ever had mashed sweet potatoes either – yous look very good. Our favorite way is just baked and treated like an Irish potato with butter, S&P.

  2. Confession…I have never made mashed sweet potatoes! I have baked them, roasted them and candied them, though, and love them. I must try them mashed!

  3. I never think to mash sweet potatoes like white potatoes, Pam. I reallly should remember more often. They are so yummy especially with a dash of nutmeg.

    Thanks so much for sharing…
