  1 rater(s)

If you don’t immediately fall in love with these mashed sweet potatoes, then we may need to have a discussion. This comforting dish is the perfect side to an entree salad and it can even be consumed for breakfast. If you do end up eating it for breakfast, drizzle a little extra maple syrup on top with a dash of cinnamon and some raw pecans.
