Prep Time:20 mins
Cook Time:40 mins
Total Time:1 hour
Yield:6-8 servings 1x
3 pounds sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
1 stick, 8 Tablespoons salted butter
1/4 Teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
3 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk of your choice
Cut the sweet potatoes into chunks about 1″x1″ trying to keep them as even as possible so that they cook evenly.
Place the cut up potatoes into a large pot with the butter, sea salt, and cream. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce to low heat. Simmer until the sweet potatoes are completely tender, 40-45 minutes, stirring 5-6 times throughout the cooking time.
When the potatoes are tender, mash them until they’re smooth in an electric mixer.
If you have leftovers, they reheat perfectly in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat, stirring constantly.
