Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Due to the slow cooking these are fairly sweet on their own..

Servings: 8

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
4 tablespoons 1% milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered lengthwise, and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch-thick *
salt & freshly ground black pepper

Combine butter, cream, salt, sugar, and sweet potatoes in large saucepan.

Cook, covered, over low heat, stirring occasionally, until potatoes fall apart when poked with fork. Make sure it is LOW heat so the potatoes cook slowly.

This will take between 30 to 45 minutes.

Wilted Spinach

Take off heat and mash sweet potatoes in saucepan with potato masher. Check seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

* Smaller sweet potatoes tend to be more tender. For a less sweet dish, leave out the sugar.
