How to Make Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Mashed sweet potatoes aren’t made much differently then regular mashed potatoes. So you’ve got this. You know what you’re doing. But I’ll walk you through it just in case ????.
- Start by cutting your sweet potatoes into smallish cubes.
- Then bring a large pot of water on the stove to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the cubes of sweet potatoes (you’ll want to cook the potatoes until they are fork tender). This will take anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
- Use an electric mixer for the next part. It will help make the potatoes way less lumpy and way more smooth – smooth as buttah.
- Blend the potatoes on low while adding the milk a little at a time. Add the butter and maple syrup and blend until mixed and smooth. Then fold in the spices and salt.
Simple and so tasty. Serve warm on the side of your dinner! Add a little extra cube of butter on top if you wish and watch everyone fall in love with this sweet potato mash recipe.
