Savory Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10-30 minutes

2 pounds sweet potatoes, washed and dried
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Ginger
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Thyme Leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Pierce each potato twice with a fork so excess steam can escape
while cooking. Microwave* potatoes on HIGH 5-10 minutes or until
tender, turning potatoes over halfway through cooking. Let stand
5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

2. Remove the skin from the potatoes. Place potatoes and remaining
ingredients in a large bowl; mash until smooth and well blended.

* Potatoes can also be boiled. To boil, cut potatoes into pieces
and place in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover 1-inch over
potatoes. Bring to a boil; cover and cook over medium-low heat
15-30 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Makes 4 (3/4 cup) servings
