To go with that roast I made these delicious mashed sweet potatoes. They were also super easy to make and the sweetness was a perfect balance to the roast. I will definitely keep this little side handy for future meals.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
2 medium-large sweet potatoes, peeled
3-4 TBSP brown sugar
3-4 TBSP butter
3-4 TBSP chopped pecans
Peel sweet potatoes and cut in half so pieces are about the same size. Place potatoes in a pot of water over over medium-high heat. Boil until fork tender, 20-25 minutes.
Once fork tender, drain water. Add brown sugar and butter to potatoes and mash until smooth. Top with pecans and serve.
