Sweet & Gold Mashed Potatoes. Sweet Potatoes & Yukon Golds are steamed then mixed with butter, salt & pepper - the best mashed potatoes - ever! Simply Sated Today I bring you the best-ever mashed potatoes. Sweet & Gold Mashed Potatoes are made with three ingredients: sweet potatoes, Yukon Gold potatoes and butter.   It is what mashed potatoes should be; it is how mashed potatoes should taste.

Sweet & Gold Mashed Potatoes. Sweet Potatoes & Yukon Golds are steamed then mixed with butter, salt & pepper - the best mashed potatoes - ever! Simply SatedI love discovering new ways of making traditional recipes, so when I came across an article on making mashed potatoes by steaming the potatoes instead of boiling them; I knew I needed to test it.

Changing the cooking technique from boiling the potatoes to steaming makes perfect sense. The starch in the potatoes isn’t disturbed as much, and the potatoes don’t soak up excess moisture; thus there is less chance of turning the potatoes into a gluey mess.

After testing this new method, this is what I discovered: steamed potatoes (sweet and/or Yukons), butter, salt & pepper are the only ingredients needed to create perfect mashed potatoes.   Yep – that’s correct – no milk, cheese or cream is required to make delicious mashed potatoes.

Simply SatedMy go-to potatoes for most potato dishes are Yukon Gold potatoes. They have a natural buttery flavor, are never mealy and work beautifully when making mashed potatoes. The addition of sweet potatoes brings just the right hint of sweetness.

Sweet & Gold Mashed Potatoes are creamy, buttery, chock full of potato flavor and will add a touch of elegance to any meal.

    I love this idea of mixing them together! Two questions: Suppose I don't have a steamer basket. Can this be steamed without one? Also, what herbs were used on top?
