1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1½ inch chunks
½ cup low-fat milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon brown sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
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.
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 (alternately, 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.
