    Yukon Gold and Sweet Potato Mash

    The addition of delicious sweet potatoes gives a nutrient boost to mashed potatoes. Double it: Cook the potatoes in a Dutch oven rather than a large saucepan.


    • 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


    Step 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.
    Step 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.
