Goat Cheese Mashed Sweet Potatoes
These Goat Cheese Mashed Sweet Potatoes make a great side dish for Thanksgiving or for any meaty main course!
- 3 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- ½ cup fat free half and half
- 3 tablespoons light butter
- 2 oz goat cheese
- ½ teaspoon rubbed sage
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Place the cubed sweet potatoes in a large pot and add water to pot until potatoes are covered. Cover and bring to a boil. Sprinkle in a little salt and then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain out the water and return the potatoes to the pot or transfer them to a large bowl.
Combine the half and half and butter in a cup or bowl and microwave them together on high for one minute. Mash the mixture into the sweet potatoes until thoroughly combined and mashed. Add the goat cheese, sage, salt and pepper and stir in until well combined.
I usually add an extra step here and smooth the mashed potatoes out with an immersion blender or a hand mixer because I like my mashed potatoes really smooth, but it’s definitely not necessary.
