Brown Butter and Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes | Four ingredients are all you need to make these delicious savory mashed sweet potatoes!Deciding what I’m going to make for the big dinner is probably the most stressful part of the holiday for me, well that and the crowded grocery store. Being a food blogger along with the desire to make the perfect meal that will blow everyone away causes some crazy anxiety in me when it comes to holiday meals or entertaining. I’ll spend hours looking at recipes trying to decide if it’s the right one or what I could do to make it better, then change my mind five times before settling on something. I’ll even wake up at night and think of something to make, then not be able to fall back to sleep. Clearly I have issues and need to relax.

Brown Butter and Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes | Four ingredients are all you need to make these delicious savory mashed sweet potatoes!Generally what happens is that the simplest and least complicated dishes that I make are the ones that everyone loves the most.

Brown Butter and Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes | Four ingredients are all you need to make these delicious savory mashed sweet potatoes!Most people only think of making sweet potatoes even sweeter with marshmallows, brown sugar, and streusel on top. I however prefer to keep them savory. I think it really let’s to you taste the flavor of the sweet potatoes without overwhelming them with all that sugar. The brown butter adds a delicious nuttiness while the rosemary adds a fresh herb flavor. Combined with the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes, this combination of flavors is sure to win the hearts of your family and friends!
