Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are underused in my opinion. It's a lot healthier has a unique taste compared to regular potatoes (it's sweet, duh?). They are rich in carbohydrates, fiber, vitamin C and B (says Wikipedia). My favorite thing to do with potatoes is to mash'em up. Read my old post to see how I make it.

Mashed sweet potatoes have to be made a little different though, as regular potatoes are savory while sweet potatoes are... sweet. Here are a few ideas on what to put in mashed sweet potatoes:
  • Sour cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • Brown sugar
  • Butter
  • Orange Juice
These are the ones I've tried so far, but there's plenty more you can experiment with! Something like cinnamon should taste good with it.
