Mashed Sweet Potatoes


For 4 Person(s)

For the Potatoes:

  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and cut into 2 inch cubes
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • salt and fresh black pepper, as desired


  1. Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil and drop the potatoes in. Boil until the potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 20-30 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Mash immediately with a potato masher until smooth.
  2. Add the butter and whip the potatoes with an electric mixer. Add the sour cream and whip until incorporated. Add the heavy cream a little at a time while whipping until smooth. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as desired.
