This is the recipe for my Mom’s mashed sweet potatoes. It is my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I beg her to make them every year when she comes to visit.
There’s not many ingredients and it’s simple to put together, which I like on the years I have to make it.
I love the salty/sweet combination this dish has. The sweetness isn’t overpowering like other sweet potato dishes I’ve had.
My in-laws hate sweet potatoes, but every year they dig into this delectable dish. If you are not a fan of sweet potatoes, I suggest giving this one a try and maybe you’ll change your mind.
