Ingredients
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes about 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 8 ounces  Mascarpone cheese
  • ½ tsp Kosher Salt
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425° Place sweet potatoes on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil and rub into skins. Bake for 40 minutes or until fork tender. Set aside and allow to cool for 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle.  
  2. Cut a line down the center of the potatoes and turn over into a medium-sized mixing bowl. The flesh of the potatoes should easily fall right into the bowl. Add to the potatoes the Mascarpone, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash together with a potato masher, whisk or fork, and stir to combine. Serve and enjoy.
