Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet Potato Mash
  • Yield: 4 servings


4pounds sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch chunks
1/4stick butter
1tablespoon brown sugar
1tablespoon honey
1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4teaspoon ground nutmeg
3tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 to 1/2cups light cream cheese, as needed to achieve desired consistency
Salt and freshly ground black pepper.


  1. These potatoes can be steamed to preserve more of the flavor and vitamins (or boiled if you wish), until tender. (To steam them, you can place them in a single layer on a rack placed over a large shallow pan of water with a large pot lid to cover. Replenish water in pan if it boils off before they are tender.)
  2. Place the tender potatoes in a large bowl and mash by hand with a masher or fork. Then, using a beater, whip in butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, and enough cream cheese to achieve your desired consistency. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
