Savory Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Charles made some awesome ham and sweet potatoes for dinner.  He mashed the sweet potatoes today but stayed with a savory flavor; I loved it!

  • 2 large sweet potato ~ peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

Place sweet potatoes in pot and cover with water; add half of the salt, half of the pepper, thyme, marjoram, and crushed red pepper.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until tender.  Drain and place in mixing bowl.  Add butter, milk, remaining salt and pepper, and cayenne.  Beat together until smooth.
