Mashed Sweet Potatoes
by Johnny Loua, Chef, Seattle, Washington
- 2 large sweet potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed
- 2 large Idaho potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup heavy cream, heated
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the potatoes in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and use a spoon to scoop the meat of the potatoes from the skins. Use a whisk or a ricer to mash the potatoes into a smooth consistency. Add butter and hot cream and continue to mix. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
