Mashed sweet potatoes


Mashed Sweet Potatoes

You might be wondering why the dish above is empty… That’s because these sweet potatoes were so yummy I didn’t get a picture before I ate them! 😀 Ha! But it’s a super simple recipe with 4 ingredients!

5-6 medium sweet potatoes

1 TBSP butter

Salt to taste

1/2 tsp cinnamon (or more if desired)

Wash the sweet potatoes, cut out bad spots & cut the ends off a little. Prick each tator with a fork in several different places. Wrap in foil and bake at 350 degrees for an hour or hour & a half. Take them out and unwrap to poke with a knife and see if they are cooked through.

Peel the sweet potatoes while warm, then place in a bowl and mash with a fork or with the hand mixer. Add the butter, salt and cinnamon. Blend well.

Eat while hot. Don’t expect leftovers! 😀

Make the Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro recipe  (click) on that link for the recipe).  Peel the sweet potatoes and add the lime and cilantro to the potatoes in a dish.

Next: Peel 4 small white potatoes and chop them into smaller pieces. Cook them till they are soft. Mix them with the sweet potatoes and blend with a hand mixer till smooth. You can add some butter and a sprinkle (very small amount!) of garlic salt for taste and blend it in.

YUMMY! I almost like these better than the plain sweet potatoes with lime and cilantro recipe! 😀
