Ingredients

  1. 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  2. 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  3. 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  4. 2 tablespoons butter
  5. 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  6. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes and sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until very tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes, then mash them in the pot to the desired consistency. Place milk and butter in a small bowl and microwave on High until the butter is mostly melted and the milk is warm, 30 to 40 seconds. (Alternatively, place in a small saucepan and heat over medium until the milk is warm.) Stir the milk mixture, sugar, salt and pepper into the mashed potatoes until combined.
