GARLIC MASHED SWEET POTATOES

February 4, 2015

One thing about butternut squash and sweet potato is that if they are not appropriately balanced in a dish, eating a lot of them can be a bit much. There are some versions of butternut squash ravioli that eating mouthful after mouthful is just too sweet for an entree. I recently dined at a restaurant that served half regular and half sweet potato fries with my burger, which is really the only way to do sweet potato fries. A whole serving and I feel like a human marshmallow.

For these mashed potatoes, I used equal part yukon gold and sweet potatoes to mellow out the bold (and beloved) flavor of my friend the yam. For them to work in prominence in an a side dish, they have got to be checked. The garlic helps with that too.

    I use this recipe but with purple sweet potatoes! AMAZING

  • I’m loving this combination of yukon gold potatoes and sweet potatoes – it looks delicious. I’ve never been to a restaurant that serves half regular fries and half sp fries, but I might make that as a side next time I make a burger for dinner!
