How to Make It

Step 1

Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above potatoes. Bring to a boil over high; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender, about 18 minutes. Remove from heat. Drain and return potatoes to saucepan.

Step 2

Combine butter and olive oil in a small skillet over medium; cook until browned and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in thyme.

Step 3

Add milk, salt, and pepper to sweet potatoes; mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. Drizzle with butter mixture; gently stir once or twice. Garnish with thyme leaves.

Very good

Basic, simple but the browned butter/oil and thyme adds a nice touch.  Must get yams next time for the lovely golden color.  Will definitely make again.
