Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez


Top Review by Lucky in Bayview

Really good! I love sweet potatoes. My DH, not so much. I had some left over from another recipe and knew he wouldn't be thrilled with the idea of eating them as is. This recipe was the perfect compromise. I substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream and added about a 1/2 t. of garlic powder while mashing. He loved them. Thanks for posting the recipe.
