Smashed White Sweet Potatoes

Smashed White Sweet Potatoes



  • 2 large white sweet potatoes (~1.75 lbs), peeled and sliced into 1″ pieces
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and white pepper, more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup each heavy cream and chicken broth (or 1/2 cup chicken broth)



Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot, then fill with enough cold water to cover the potatoes by an inch. Bring to a boil on high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until fork-tender, about 12 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot; stir in the butter, salt, white pepper, nutmeg, and half of the cream and chicken broth. Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth, adding more cream and chicken broth as needed. Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired
