• Mashed Sweet Potatoes


By Andrew Zimmern

This is my favorite way to serve sweet potatoes, an easy sweet-and-savory side dish your whole family will love.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt, or more to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash and dry potatoes, prick all over with a fork.

Roast the potatoes on a baking tray until tender, roughly 75-90 minutes. Remove potatoes from skins and mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl. Add all other ingredients, combine well and serve.
