We eat a lot of sweet potatoes in my house. I mean A LOT. Most of the time they are just baked, chopped up and roasted or made into french fries. This time, I made regular mashed sweet potatoes, but added in some goat cheese. The goat cheese gave the sweet potatoes a little bit of tanginess. I made them and took them to our cooking club meeting, and everyone loved them!
Goat Cheese Mashed Sweet Potatoes
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into cubes
1/2 cup (or more) of half-and-half
1/2 stick butter
2 oz goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Boil the sweet potatoes in a large pot until they are soft and able to be pierced with a fork. Drain and return to the pot or a big bowl. Heat together the half-and-half with the butter in the microwave until the butter is melted. Add the butter/half-and-half mixture to the sweet potatoes, and combine with a mixer until smooth. Mix in the goat cheese until well combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
