You’ll notice, if you’ve been following my blog regularly, that this recipe looks pretty dang similar to my Roasted Garlic Butter Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe. Well, admittedly, that’s because it is really similar. I actually had the idea for this recipe before that one.

Honestly, they’re both really super similar. The main difference is simply that the roasted garlic version is sweet and this maple butter sweet potato mash is sweet. Common sense, right?

But just like all recipes, simply swapping out a couple choice ingredients has a major impact on the overall flavor of the dish.

Maple syrup and sweet potatoes immediately sound like an ideal match; after all, that lovely, robust maple flavor enhances the existing sweetness of yams.

I’ve always been a major sweet potato fan, but for the past year I’ve taken an unintentional break from them. See, I eat my fair share of white potatoes because they’re delicious and cheaper. So sweet potatoes kinda got pushed to the back burner for a while.

Recently, though, they’ve made their way back to my plate. I mean, what was I thinking? Roasted sweet potatoes, sweet potato mash, sweet potato fries… You’ve just gotta have sweet potatoes in your life or you’re missing out.

(Quick aside to say that FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is a real thing and while I normally don’t want to impart an unhealthy regret of not living your life a certain way, you should probably make some sweet potato fries. Or this recipe.)
