So many delicious and complementing flavors in this dish. I made it for Thanksgiving one year (for 40 people so I made multiple servings!) and it was gone with the first helpings at the buffet table!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes.
  2. I leave the peels on for texture and nutrients, but feel free to peel them.
  3. Quarter the sweet potatoes and cut into slices about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Combine butter, cream, salt, sugar, and sweet potatoes in a large saucepan. (you can also substitute milk or half and half for the cream).
  5. Cook covered over low heat, stirring occasionally untill potatoes fall apart when poked with a fork. About 30-40 minutes. (Microwaving also works. It takes a little shorter, but cooking time varies-about 20 minutes).
  6. Turn off heat and mash the potatoes with a hand mashed (preferred) or a handmixer.
  7. Stir in remaining ingredients and whip to make fluffy.
  8. Also try sprinkling some dried cranberries or chopped walnuts on top :).
