Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Looking for a tasty alternative to regular mashed potatoes? Try mashed sweet potatoes (aka yams).
|Time||40 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes, depending on cooking method|
Optional seasonings (use one or more)
|Directions||There are three ways to cook sweet potatoes in preparation of mashing:
1. Baking: Bake at 400º for 50-60 minutes, depending on size.
2. Boiling: Boil potatoes whole, 20-40 minutes.
3. Steaming: Steam, covered, over boiling water, 30-50 minutes.
With all of these methods, the potatoes are ready when they are very soft when pierced with a fork. Once cooked, you can peel the sweet potatoes, if desired.
Mash, add seasonings, and serve.
|Notes||Personally, I like my sweet potatoes plain with just a touch of butter.|
