Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Buttermilk, to taste (or substitute milk, half and half, cream or chicken stock)
  • Butter, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Place potatoes in a stockpot and cover with cold water; bring to a low boil and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain well and return potatoes to the hot pot. Roughly mash potatoes with a potato masher, then add small amounts of buttermilk and butter, a little at a time, continuing to mash potatoes to incorporate, until you achieve the desired consistency and taste. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
You can add herbs such as chives, thyme or parsley to add both flavor and color. Top with any of your favorite toppings such as crumbled bacon or sour cream.
