Super Savory Sweet Potato
OHHHH MYYYY, this is Amazing!!!Trust in the powers of Butter/Thyme/Rosemary!!! This is a more economical, and time cutting recipe that still delivers that savory, buttery sweet potato mash we all love!
- 1 bag microwaveable sweet potato
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons dry rosemary
- 1 tablespoon dry thyme
- to taste Salt
- to taste Pepper
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons finely diced onion
- 1/4 stick COLD unsalted butter
Start microwaveable sweet potatoes to cooking. While they cook, get a small sauce pan and place butter inside and put on low heat.
When butter melts, put rosemary, thyme, and onion into butter. Keep the heat low and just let this slowly do its thing for 7-10 minutes. The goal is to extract oils from the herbs, soften the onion, for mixing into the potatoes. You don’t want to cook the veg/herbs, only poach them in the butter.
When the buttery mixture is complete, pour the entire buttery mixture into a blender, adding adding heavy cream, and blend until smooth. For best results, add warm cream:)
Peel your sweet potatoes, place into a bowl for mixing. You can hand mix these potatoes easily, grab a fork. Add the remaining 1/4 stick of cold butter, and mix well. When the butter is incorporated, add in the butter/cream/herb mix and fold it into the potatoes until incorporated. Salt & Pepper to taste!
Reheat if necessary. Serve, and enjoy:)
