8 medium sweet potatoes (about 4 pounds), peeled and diced
3/4 to 1 cup of milk

2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

  1. Add sweet potatoes to a large pot of enough boiling water. Cover and boil for about 25 minutes, until tender. Drain and place into a large bowl.
  2. Add milk and butter to sweet potatoes, and use a potato masher or electric mixer to combine together. Do not over-mix – mash or blend until just smooth. Add remaining ingredients, and gently combine.
