Four ingredients are all you need to make these delicious savory inspired brown butter and rosemary mashed sweet potatoes!
We are getting so close to Thanksgiving! Do you have your menus finalized or are you like me and constantly going back and forth between what to make? Well in case you don’t have everything finalized and even if you do, make room for these Brown Butter and Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes!
When people think about sweet potatoes being served at Thanksgiving I’m pretty sure they are picturing them sweetened with loads brown sugar and piled high with marshmallows, streusel or pecans on top. I could definitely go for a scoop of those, but I think of those as more of a dessert than a side dish. Savory mashed sweet potatoes are something I can’t get enough of. I actually prefer them over regular potatoes which can sometimes be a little boring in the flavor department. Since sweet potatoes are already naturally sweet, adding savory elements like brown butter and fresh rosemary makes for the perfect balance of flavors. You may think about skipping the browning part of the butter, but don’t! Browning butter is super simple and adds an amazing nutty, rich flavor that can’t be mimicked.
Fresh rosemary is such a wonderful herb to use this time of year, just be sure to chop it up finely so you don’t end up chewing away on one of the big piney needle-like leaves…no one wants that. If you don’t like rosemary or can’t find it, sub in a different herb such as thyme or fresh sage, just be sure to use fresh herbs. Today I’m sharing this easy, minimal ingredient and delicious recipe over on Spoonful of Flavor. Head on over to Ashley’s blog and grab the recipe along with some other tasty Thanksgiving recipes!
