Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into two-inch pieces
1/4 cup of milk
1 to 2 tablespoons butter, to taste
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
Put the sweet potatoes in a large pot and add just enough cold water to cover them.
Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
Place milk, butter, sea salt, freshly grated nutmeg and freshly cracked pepper in a glass bowl.
Cook for 30 seconds in the microwave, or until warmed.
Drain and return the potatoes to the pot and place back on the stove with the burner turned down to low, which will dry up any excess water.
Add the warmed milk mixture and mash with a hand masher or beater until smooth.
Taste and add more salt or nutmeg if needed.
I didn't have any nutmeg to add to the milk and butter. I used 2% milk and it still tasted very creamy.
