Recipe: Mashed Sweet Potatoes

A perfect fall recipe!  These mashed sweet potatoes are great for any day of the week, not just for holidays because they are SO simple to make.  I make mine pretty sweet because my husband likes them that way, but you can adjust the sweetness level easily.

You'll Need:
- Four (4) large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- Dash of salt
- 1/3 cup reduced fat milk
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 TBS butter
- 1 Tsp ground cinnamon

Step 1: Place the peeled and cubed potatoes in a med/large pot and cover with water.  Add a dash of salt and place over high heat.  Once the potatoes are boiling, reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of your cubes.  You will know when they are done because they will be fork tender.

Step 2: Drain and let air dry for a minute or two before returning to the pot.  Add the remaining ingredients (milk, butter, brown sugar, honey, and cinnamon) and mash together with a whisk.

Step 3: Enjoy!
