  • 1 cup Hiland Dairy Whole Milk (divided into ⅔ cup and 1/3 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Hiland Dairy Butter
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut lengthwise and into quarters then into ½ inch cubes.
  • In a large saucepan, melt 4 Tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes to the pan and stir to coat potatoes in the melted butter. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add ⅔ cup of the Hiland milk plus the salt, stir together. Cover the pot with a lid and let cook for about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. (if the liquid looks to have evaporated totally, add a splash or two more of milk and stir)
  • Remove from heat and add the remaining ⅓ cup milk. Using a hand mixer, whip the sweet potatoes right in the pot until smooth, creamy and fluffy. Taste and add more salt if needed. Spoon into a serving dish.
  • In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the maple syrup and bring to a simmer. Add the pecans and stir, bring back to a boil and remove from the heat.
  • You can either spoon the maple syrup over the serving dish of sweet potatoes or over the individual servings.
