|Sweet Potato Mash|
After looking again at this recipe, I halved it, but realized upon re-typing it that I did not half the milk or Greek yogurt. Mystery solved as to why they were a little extra liquid-y. I have made these before and they came out perfect, here I was blaming my ineptitude on the altitude! Whoops!
Garlic Sweet Potato Mash
1 lb. (2 medium) sweet potatoes, cubed
1/2 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
salt and fresh cracked ground pepper, to taste
In a large pot boil sweet potatoes in salted water until tender, (easily pierced with a fork).
Drain in a colander.
Meanwhile, melt butter and sauté garlic until lightly golden. Return potatoes to the pan, add milk and sour cream. Mash until smooth. (I have used both a potato masher and some forks in this recipe, both work well, it's up to you!)
Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
