Mmmm, these were good! This is the first time I've had sweet potato mash with garlic in it. Will never make it any other way again! I don't mind the white sweet potatoes - it's all you can get here. Other than the color being a bit off sometimes, I like the way they taste. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9 for the Gourmet Goddesses.

Yummy! The garlic was fabulous in these potatoes; more garlic will be added next time. I think the "orange sweet potatoes" could be used but that is personal preference. Made for ZWT9 for the Gourmet Goddesses July 2013.
