Description

Imagine a side dish so velvety and flavorful that it could steal the spotlight at any meal - that's what you get with Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Fresh Thyme. These golden, buttery spuds are whipped to perfection, infusing each bite with a hint of earthy thyme.


Ingredients

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 T. unsalted butter, room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 T. half and half
2 T. fresh thyme leaves, minced
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground all-spice
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Optional toppings:
Whipped cream cheese**
Walnuts halves, toasted


Instructions

  1. Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, approximately 15-20 minutes. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

  2. Add butter, cream cheese, and half & half to the sweet potatoes and mash with an immersion blender or a hand-held mixer. For a thinner consistency, add more half & half, if desired. 

  3. Once the potatoes are creamy, stir in thyme leaves, cinnamon, and allspice until well blended. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately topped with a spoonful of whipped cream cheese and/or toasted walnuts, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

These rich and creamy mashed sweet potatoes are the perfect side dish for just about any holiday meal. However, they’re so quick and easy to make, you’ll want to enjoy them throughout the year.

What’s more, sweet potatoes are as nutritious as they are delicious. They contain fewer calories and are higher in fiber, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C than their white counterparts.*
