Mashed Sweet Potatoe

We love some Sweet Potato in our house. This is one of my favorite sides to fix and EAT!!!

Sweet Potatoes are very healthy for you......and Very easy!

3 large sweet potatoes
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
2 TBSP brown sugar
1/4 cup of pet milk

Wash, peel and cut your potatoes into cubes. Then place in pot- fill with water to top of potatoes. Place pot on High and allow to come to a rolling boil. Boil until potatoes are tender. {to check- stick a knife into potato and if it is tender or falls apart- it is done}
Drain water. Mash potatoes with potato masher or using electric beater. Add milk, butter, Cinnamon and sugar and mix again. Mix well and if needed add more to taste.
You can add marshmallows also to hot potatoes for a topping. Of course Sweet potatoes are much healthier than white- but adding extra sugar takes away from the healthy factor.
