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.
