Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Shallots

Active Time: 15 minutes   |   Total Time: 50 minutes   |   Serves 6  |  Gluten Free

Ingredients
  • 2½ pounds sweet potatoes
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 shallots
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 thyme sprigs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup whole milk, plus more, if necessary
Instructions

Heat the oven (with the oven rack in the middle) to 400°F. Pierce the potatoes several times with the tines of a fork. Place them on a sheet pan and bake for about 45 minutes, or until very tender.

While the potatoes bake, caramelize the shallots: thinly slice the shallots into rings. In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes, until tender and caramelized. Pull the thyme leaves from their sprigs and stir into the shallots. Remove from the heat.

Cut open the potatoes and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the butter, black pepper, and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt. Mash. Add the milk and mash until creamy. If you want them a little creamier, add a little more milk.

Serve the sweet potatoes topped with the caramelized shallots.
