Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Cumin Sage Butter combines sweet, savory and spice for a spectacular side dish.




  1. Cook the sweet potatoes: Bring a pot of water to boil for the sweet potatoes. Add the potatoes and cook until soft–they cook a bit quicker than regular potatoes, about 20 to 25 minutes should do.
  2. Make the butter: As the potatoes cook, make the butter. Place the softened butter in a medium sized bowl. Add the garlic, sage, cumin, and lime juice to butter, and stir to combine. You need to stir vigorously at first to get things well incorporated into the butter. Continue stirring until everything is well mixed together. You can make the butter earlier and refrigerate if you like.
  3. Mash sweet potatoes with butter: Drain the potatoes, add 1/2 cup of milk and butter. Mash in the butter and milk as you would other types of mashed potatoes. Add extra milk as needed, mashing until you reach your desired consistency.
  4. Serve with turkey, pork or other entree. Enjoy!
