Southern Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes remind me more of Southern cooking than any other vegetable. I cannot remember a holiday that sweet potatoes were not served in a variety of ways. Here is one of my favorite holiday sweet potato recipes.
- 3 pounds sweet potatoes peeled and cut into chunks
- 4 tablespoons 1/2 stick butter
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- Salt and pepper to taste
Place potatoes in large pot and add water to just cover them. Set heat to high and boil potatoes until tender, and then drain.
Place potatoes back into the pot and fold in butter and sugar until dissolved. Blend in spices with a hand mixer until well incorporated and potatoes are smooth. Serve hot with extra butter!
