Hey guys! Sam back from The Culinary Compass bringing you another one of my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes! Loaded Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite dishes, but when oven time is coveted and there are a lot of mouths to feed, these Mashed Loaded Sweet Potatoes bring you all of the flavors without the hassle!
They’re filled with brown sugar, half and half, cinnamon, and nutmeg for a creamy and sweet version of mashed potatoes. Why wait until dessert for all of the sweetness?
I love the color that they bring to the table! They’re always so vibrant and make such a statement on your Thanksgiving table.
I also prefer to hand mash them just so they aren’t super creamy, but that’s a personal choice. If you’re a big fan of creamy mashed potatoes, break out that hand mixer and go to town! You’ll probably have to add a little more half and half to thin it out a little more to avoid any Thanksgiving mixer disasters.
The great part about having these Mashed Loaded Sweet Potatoes is being able to top them with whatever you’d like! I’m a big fan of adding crushed walnuts just for a little crunch. Something savory like bacon crumbles would also be delicious!
You can also stick them in individual ramekins and put some mini marshmallows on top. I stick them in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes to get the great gooey centers! If oven time is too tight, break out the Fluff and use that instead.
