A staple for many occasions is mashed potato. One of my favourites is subbing traditional potatoes for sweet. Try it. You’ll be glad you did. We also tend to make a platter, half traditional, half sweet. A little of everything for everyone.
The Food Network has a great recipe from Paula Deen.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 10 min Yield: 4-6 servings
- 10 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Add the potatoes to a large Dutch oven and cover with water.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce the heat and simmer or until the potatoes are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes, drain well.
Return the potatoes to the Dutch oven and add the butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt.
Beat at medium-low speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.
Cook’s Note: For more sweetness, add more honey.
