Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

2-3 sweet potatoes
1/2 & 1/2 (or milk, if you're health-conscious)
2 tbsp butter
Pinch of brown sugar
Salt & pepper to taste

Wash, peel, and cube potatoes into 1 inch chunks. In medium to large sauce pan, cover sweet potatoes with water. Cook on high heat until water is boiling, then reduce to medium to medium-high and boil for 12-15 minutes, until tender when you stick it with a fork. Drain water. Partially mash the potatoes, then add 1/2 & 1/2 or milk until you can just see it at the edges, approximately a third to a half a cup. Mash further, then add butter and brown sugar. Finish mashing until potatoes are at consistency desired (I like them to still be a little lumpy, but that's me). Salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
