Mashed Sweet Potato


I love Sweet Potato Oven Fries. Actually, I even dream about the Sweet Potato Oven Fries. I always thought I hated sweet potatoes. The only way I ever saw them was out of a can and topped with gooey marshmallows on Thanksgiving. Yuck! Finding that I loved them with a more savory flavor was quite a revelation. After the recent successwith butternut squash, I decided to try mashed sweet potatoes and add a few savory seasonings. I found a recipe off of the internet and tried it with dinner the other night. Suffice it to say. Not. A. Success. Blech. Too much smoky cumin flavor. Not enough liquid to give it a pleasant texture. Even dh wouldn't eat it. It was so bad, I'm not going to even link to it. I still think there's a good savory mashed sweet potato recipe out there somewhere. If you want a recipe, google for it and be sure and let me know how it comes out. I need a good recipe!

Sorry it wasn't a success. Maybe next time try browning a few tablespoons of butter and mixing it in with milk, salt, pepper, and a tiny little bit of nutmeg.

I like the idea of nutmeg. :-) I'll give that a try! I had a great mashed sweet potato dish last weekend. Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pears. I'll be blogging about it soon.
