Savory Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Published November 1, 1996.

Why this recipe works:

We wanted to find the perfect savory mashed sweet potato recipe, moist and flavorful. We pierced the potatoes’ skins with a fork and rubbed the potatoes with oil, then baked them on a foil-lined baking sheet set on the middle rack of a 400-degree oven before mashing them.

These recipes are for the moist, orange-fleshed varieties of sweet potatoes; drier white-fleshed types take longer to bake and require larger amounts of fat and/or liquid to counteract their drier texture. You can cook up to six potatoes at one time without altering the cooking time. Buying potatoes of the same size is a good idea because it standardizes cooking time.
