Ingredients

  • 1 Pound  Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 Pound  sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 Cup  1-percent low-fat milk
  • 2 Tablespoons  butter
  • 1 Teaspoon  brown sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoons  salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  black ground pepper

The addition of delicious sweet potatoes gives a nutrient boost to mashed potatoes. Double it: Cook the potatoes in a Dutch oven rather than a large saucepan.

Directions

Place the potatoes and sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until very tender when pierced with a fork, 20-25 minutes.

Drain the potatoes, then mash them in the pot to the desired consistency. Place the milk and butter in a small bowl and microwave on high until the butter is mostly melted and the milk is warm, 30-40 seconds. (Alternatively, place in a small saucepan and heat over medium until the milk is warm.)

Stir the milk mixture, sugar, salt, and pepper into the mashed potatoes until combined.
