Course: Side Dish
Author: Christy Jordan


  • 4 Medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Wash, peel, and cut sweet potatoes into chunks or slices.
  • Place in medium sized stock pot and add enough water to cover the sweet potatoes by about an inch. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce heat to medium and cook until potatoes are soft and tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes and transfer them to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add butter, cream, honey, and cinnamon to potatoes and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended, light, and fluffy. Serve warm.
