Mashed Potato's With Herbs And Sweet Potato's

Sweet Potato's are the much healthier potato to eat. Not everyone likes Sweet Potato's. My Family is actually starting to enjoy them more and more.

Here is a great recipe to help jump start your Family to start eating healthier.

Mashed Potato's with Herbs and Sweet Potato's are just as easy to do as plain mashed potato's.

  • Yukon Gold Potato's (one per person)
  • Sweet Potato's (one per person)
  • Two Tablespoons Fresh Chives (chopped)
  • Two Tablespoons Fresh Flat Leaf Italian Parsley (chopped)
  • Salt
  • Fresh Ground Pepper
  • Three table spoons Butter
  • Milk
Wash all the potato's.

Peel the Sweet Potato's (and the white ones if you prefer, I leave the skins on).

Cut all the potatoes into 1 - 1/2 in square pieces.

Place potatoes into large sauce pan and just cover with water. Bring to boil reduce to simmer until just fork tender. Don't over cook or they will turn to mush.

Drain in colander.

Place butter into hot sauce pan and melt. Add 1/2 Cup Milk and heat, season with salt, Pepper, Chives and Parsley.

Add Potato's back into sauce pan and toss together, just enough to mix well and heat (you can add more milk a little at a time if needed)


This recipe is also great for left overs, just reheat in the microwave!

Let me know what your family thinks ;)



  1. These look so good. We're starting to eat more sweet potatoes, too. I found some small ones at the Farmer's Market last weekend. They looked like fingerlings.

  2. I love sweet potatoes! In fact, I am feeling lucky that it is easier to get my family to eat sweet potatoes than regular potatoes. This is a great recipe! Thanks for sharing it with your foodie friends.
