Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes – A Speedy Thanksgiving Side Dish

This is one of the easiest mashed sweet potatoes recipes to make. I quickly whipped it up as I was roasting my herb turkey thighs recipe. Besides the sweet potato, all you need is milk, salt and pepper. To finish it off, top the mash with homemade herbed garlic butter or some turkey gravy to make for a fantastic Thanksgiving side dish.

I only used one sweet potato because it was quite large, but use as many as you like. I never peel potatoes when I cook them, and when you hand blend it you won’t even notice it. Also, you can add in a regular potato for a less sweet flavor.

Cut sweet potato into chunks and boil in water until tender.

Blend potatoes with milk until desired consistency.
