Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

These mashed sweet potatoes are rich, garlicky and oh so creamy. They will pair well with a hearty beef dish and a big glass of red wine!

If you’re looking for the accompaniment to my  Slow Cooker Bourbon Braised Beef, here it is! If you haven’t made my Bourbon Braised Beef….ummm, what are you waiting for?!?!? Hop on over to that recipe ASAP and get that going in the crock pot, then come back here and make these taters!

Truth be told, I am not a huge sweet potato fan. I know, can you believe it?! I love literally every other kind of spud, but I’ve never been too keen on the sweet tater. Not sure why, I know it’s a lot of people’s jam. However, these mashed sweet potatoes are making me re-think my alliances with the other spuds.

I’m not sure that I’m ready to admit it quite yet, but I might like mashed sweet potatoes more than regular mashed potatoes. There’s something about the slight sweetness mixed with the garlic and salt that really does it for me. Kinda like my Salted, Brown Butter Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies–the perfect marriage of salty and sweet. Life is all about balance, right?

Description

These mashed sweet potatoes are rich, garlicky and oh so creamy. They will pair well with a hearty beef dish and a big glass of red wine!


Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
  • 6-8 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add diced potatoes to a large pot. Fill pot with water until it covers the potatoes by about 2 inches. Turn heat to high and bring water to a boil. Add a few large pinches of salt and boil potatoes for 10-12 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Return the large pot to the stove and add butter. Heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add garlic and saute, stirring frequently for about 1 minute. Remove pot from heat. Add potatoes back into the pot along with heavy cream, sour cream and a couple large pinches of salt and a large pinch of pepper. Use a potato masher to mash potatoes as you combine them with the other ingredients. Mash until well combined and well mashed. Season to taste and garnish with fresh chopped parsley and Bourbon Braised Beef.
