Change things up with mashed sweet potatoes instead of regular mashed potatoes. Sweet potatoes do not need tons of sugar or tiny marshmallows on top of them in order to be delicious!
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
6 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup half and half
6 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
salt and pepper
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Boil until potatoes are very tender. Drain off excess water. Mash the potatoes and add half and half, butter, and maple syrup. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
