Mashed Sweet Potatoes
4 lbs sweet potatoes (I used 3 extra-extra-large ones)
6 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Wash the sweet potatoes, then prick the skin with a fork several times. Place the sweet potatoes in the oven and bake for about an hour or until the potato is cooked through.
2. When the potatoes have cooled enough to handle them, remove the skins, and mash them in a large mixing bowl. Either an electric mixer or a good old fashioned potato masher will work just fine. Add the butter, brown sugar, and salt, and mix until thoroughly mixed. Add the milk, and continue mixing until smooth and creamy.
3. Serve up some sweet potato goodness. Is anyone in the mood for Thanksgiving yet?
