These 4-Ingredient Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Brown Butter would make the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu! Quick, easy, and SO delicious!
Add potatoes to a large pot. Fill with enough cold water to cover potatoes. Place potatoes on the stove and bring to a boil and then reduce to a slow bowl (medium heat) until potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes.
While potatoes cook, add butter to a small skillet. Turn the heat on medium-high, and once the butter begins to brown on the edges, swirl the pan. Keep swirling the pan until the butter becomes a deep brown and smells nutty, about 2-3 minutes. Pour into a small bowl, and make sure to get all the little brown bits (There's a lot of flavor in them!).
Drain potatoes, and if needed, pat potatoes dry. Working in batches, run potatoes through ricer and back into pot. If you don't have a ricer, just use a potato masher.
Once potatoes are smooth, use a potato masher to blend in brown butter, brown sugar, half and half, and salt. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garish with a little bit of brown sugar and flaked Maldon salt.
