How about just mashing them?

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe on tablefortwoblog.com

  • 2½ pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup half-and-half (or heavy cream or milk)
  • 1 tsp. salt, or more to taste
  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil then add the sweet potatoes to the pot. Cook the sweet potatoes until they’re fork tender.
  2. Carefully drain the sweet potatoes then place them in a large bowl. Using a potato ricer, a potato masher, or just a fork, mash the potatoes to your desired consistency. If you want more texture, you’ll likely want to use the potato masher and fork (like I did).
  3. Stir in the butter, half-and-half, and salt.
  4. Serve warm.

The only things I would to the above recipe is BROWN SUGAR. 

My gram would always make Southern Sweet Potatoes! They provoke so many awesome feels.
