Sage Mashed Sweet Potatoes | WHAT TO MAKE FOR THANKSGIVING

If you've been following me for a millisecond you know I love fresh herbs. This dish is a small twist on traditional mashed potatoes perfect for thanksgiving. This recipe was a happy accident, sage happened to be the only herb that I had on hand while I was making this dish one evening. The sage complimented the sweet potatoes so well, I loved it so much that I have been making it with sage ever since.  

What you'll need
  • About 1 lb of potatoes
  • 3 Sprigs of fresh sage, 1-2 sprigs of thyme
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Heavy cream as needed

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes. Add to a pot and fill with water just until the potatoes are just covered.

Add three cloves of garlic, 2-3 sprigs of sage and 1-2 sprigs of thyme or rosemary. Cook until tender.

Strain water and remove herbs. Add the butter and begin to mash with a spoon.

Once butter is incorporated, whip until smooth adding heavy cream when necessary.
