Sweet Potato Mash Ingredients:

  • Sweet Potatoes– sweet potatoes are mildly sweet root vegetables with bright orange flesh.
  • Butter– either salted or unsalted. I prefer salty for the contrast to the other sweet flavors of this side dish.
  • Half & Half– a blend of cream and milk that can generally be found near the coffee creamer in most grocery stores. It’s creamier and richer than milk, without the density of heavy cream.
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown Sugar
  • Salt
  • Chopped Walnuts or Pecans– for a crunchy garnish.

How to Make Sweet Potato Mash:

  • Prepare Sweet Potatoes– peel potatoes and cut into chunks. Add potato chunks to a large pot and cover with water. Bring pot to a boil and boil for 20-25 minutes until potatoes are very tender and easily pierced with a fork. Once cooked, drain water.
  • Mash & Mix– add 1/2 cup half & half and room temperature butter to pot with cooked sweet potatoes. Using a potato masher, mash sweet potatoes. Add honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt to taste. Continue mashing until all ingredients are well incorporated and desired consistency is reached, adding more cream if needed.
  • Plate & Serve– Add sweet potato mash to a serving plate. Top with chopped walnuts or chopped pecans, an extra pad of butter, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Tips & Recipe Notes:

  • For a smoother mash, add mashed sweet potatoes along with remaining ingredients to a stand mixer with a paddle attachment. While on medium-low, pour in a bit of extra cream and let run until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.
