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.
