  • Drain the potatoes, then mash them in the pot to the desired consistency. Place milk and butter in a small bowl and microwave on High until the butter is mostly melted and the milk is warm, 30 to 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.

Have done a variation of this for many years. Instead of the brown sugar I grate fresh ginger into the mix. Really delicious. Read More

Creamy and flavorful I made these with just sweet potatoes and just added liquid slowly to avoid the overly soupy result that a previous reviewer had mentioned. I also only added 1/2 the amount of butter. My kids and hubby loved it! We will definitely make this again. Pros: Love that this is a low fat version of a holiday favorite. Read More

I've made this several times and it is fantastic. A good way to introduce sweet potatoes. Not sure what the person did that said it was like soup. The consistancy is very good. I double the recipe and freeze some. Read More

Have just made this receipe--it is nothing but soup and all you can taste is the mashed yukon potatoes. It is a very pale orange color and very bland. I followed the receipe and am very disappointed. Obviously I won't be serving it today! I would not recommend it to anyone. Read More
