A delicious mashed sweet potato recipe great for the holidays or anytime.


6 large Sweet Potatoes; peeled and cut into chunks
1 stick Butter; cut into quarters
1/4 cup Brown sugar
Milk; Just a splash (about or less than a quarter cup)
Cinnamon; to taste
Salt; to taste
Marshmellows; OPTIONAL
chopped pecans; OPTIONAL (can sub with walnuts)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Peel and cut sweet potatoes into medium sized chunks and get a pot of water boiling with a few pinch's of salt in the water. Once boiling add sweet potatoes and boil until potatoes are just fork tender, drain. Place potatoes into large mixing bowl, Add 3/4 stick of butter and let melt a bit, add milk, brown sugar, salt and a pinches of cinnamon (to taste) and mix with a hand blender until a smooth consistency is achieved. Add the rest of the butter on top to melt and serve.

OPTIONAL: For that extra special holiday side dish Empty finished sweet potatoes into a baking dish and add marshmallows and chopped pecans and bake on high until marshmallows melt.


The Key is to add just enough cinnamon to give it just a hint of cinnamon in the back drop of the flavors, this is not a desert so you don't want to over do it.
