I wanted to make a sweet potato side dish that didn't taste like the Thanksgiving kind of sweet potatoes we normally eat. I was also serving them next to the honey roasted chicken, which is sweet, so I decided adding rosemary and treating them more like normal mashed potatoes might work.
This was really the perfect match for my spicy honey roasted chicken.
Smashed Sweet Potatoes with Rosemary
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
Place sweet potatoes in saucepan and cover with water, add salt. Bring to a boil, and boil until potatoes are tender. Strain potatoes, add back to pan, and add remaining ingredients. Mash them all together until smooth.
