These delectable six ingredient Mashed Sweet Potatoes are so incredibly creamy with just a touch of sweetness. Mashed sweet potatoes are one of our favorites sides especially in the fall and winter months. I love to serve this side with Ham Steak with Honey Mustard Glaze and Green Bean Bundles with Bacon.
