Brown-Butter Sweet Mashed Potatoes
Cook time: 20 minutes | Yield: 6-8 servings
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled cut into chunks
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons sage, minced
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Place cut sweet potatoes in a pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile place butter into a small pan and melt until it turns brown. You are looking for brown butter. Remove it from the heat and add the sage.
Drain potatoes and pass them through a ricer back into the pot or mash them with a potato masher. Add the butter-sage, buttermilk and maple syrup. Stir to mix. Season with salt and pepper.
