Brown Sugar & Herb Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Makes about 3 cups (5-6 servings)



2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1 clove garlic, minced

1 heaping teaspoon dried sage, thyme or rosemary

1 Tbsp. light brown sugar

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup (3 oz.) Sargento® Artisan Blends Shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste



In a large saucepan over high heat, add sweet potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.


Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot, away from heat. Add butter, garlic, dried herb of choice, brown sugar, and heavy cream.


With a hand mixer or potato masher, beat mixture until smooth and creamy. Stir in cheese. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.


Serve warm.
