Sweet potatoes mashed with mascarpone cheese, and a hint of sour cream, makes this a heavenly, healthy dish that is also high in fiber for the whole family. Quick and easy recipe for smooth sweet potatoes as a side dish is wonderful to serve for this upcoming holiday!
I was inspired to create this side dish after I had dinner with my family at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester, New York. I was so amazed at how light and fluffy these whipped sweet potatoes were, that I just had to ask for the recipe. Well, the reluctant waiter would only tell me that it had mascarpone cheese, and I would have to figure out the rest. So, after making a few batches and testing the flavors to my best ability, I think I finally got it!
These sweet potatoes mashed with mascarpone cheese were so incredibly light, and yet they had lots of flavor. You will be amazed! Try this as one of your side dishes for this thanksgiving, you will be glad you did!
