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

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.

Sweet Potato Shopping Tip

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Sweet Potato Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.
