Thanksgiving is quickly approaching! Will you be hosting this year? Maybe you’re taking a dish to a gathering. Today is your lucky day. I’m sharing a Mashed Sweet Potatoes side dish — and collaborating with some of my bloggy friends to bring you 25+ Amazing Holiday Recipes that we hope will inspire your menu for the upcoming Thanksgiving celebration. What do you think? Pretty exciting, right?
Like I said, I’m sharing a delicious mashed sweet potato recipe, then we’ll get to the other delicious goodness! Anwyho, I love sweet potatoes in just about any shape or size. I tend to eat them baked with butter and brown sugar, but for a side dish at Thanksgiving or while entertaining, it’s mashed all the way! Sweet potato fries are awesome sauce too! Let’s whip up a batch of these Mashed Sweet Potatoes, shall we? #nomnomnom
