5 Min





We've always been told a healthy plate should have different colors on it. Now you can enjoy mash potatoes without any one nagging you to add color because they have that covered! This recipe covers everything you need in a new food. It has the color, appealing nature, taste, and smell all in one scoop.


6-7 Russet Potatoes

1-2 yams/sweet potatoes

1 stick of butter

1-2 shallots, diced

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1 cup heavy cream, milk, buttermilk or sour cream


Mash Potatoes

Step 1

Add the potatoes to a large pot. Bring to a boil. When they're cooked through, the fork should easily slide into the potatoes with no resistance. The potatoes should almost, but not totally, fall apart.

Step 2

Drain the potatoes in a large colander. Peel the potatoes and place them back in the pot. Mash the potatoes before adding in all the other ingredients.

Step 3

In a cast iron skillet, melt butter, add shallots and cook until translucent. Add garlic and stir until fragrant about 30 seconds. Add cream and stir until combined with butter and warmed through.

Step 4

Add cream mixture to the mashed potatoes and yams. Stir to combine.
