Sweet and Mashed: Recipe
Sweet potatoes...they are super delicious when mashed. These were rich and creamy and soft. My daughter had two helpings before I even had a chance to sit down and eat my first spoonful. Easy as pie - and worth every minute.
Simple Mashed Sweet Potatoes
2 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 - 1/3 cup heavy cream
In a large pot, bring enough water to a boil to accommodate the potatoes. Drop in the potatoes at the boiling point and allow them to boil about 25 minutes or until they are very soft when pierced with a fork. Drain and return them to the pot. With a potato masher, mash them well. Add in the butter and cream, mashing well after each addition.
