Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes
  • 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
    low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons
    butter
  • 1 tablespoon
    brown sugar
  • 3/4 tablespoons
    salt
  • 1/4 tablespoon
    freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Place 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 to 25 minutes.
  2. 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.
