Stovetop Sweet Potatoes 

I love sweet potatoes! Super creamy, rich, yummy sweet potatoes.  I don't want to always go through the trouble of making baked sweet potatoes, so these are my simple fix. 

These are not winning a health award, but they are mighty tasty. 


  • 3lb sweet potatoes
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1cup brown sugar
  • 1/2cup heavy cream
  • 2tbsp maple syrup


  • Boil the sweet potatoes until they are really easy to cut through
  • Drain
  • While they are draining melt 2 sticks of butter
  • Add the brown sugar and dissolve 
  • Add the heavy cream
  • Add the maple syrup
  • Add the sweet potatoes and mash them up to desired consistency 
  • Enjoy!
