  2. Steam cubed potatoes until fork tender approximately 15-20 minutes.
  3. Keep the types of potatoes separate and press Yukon Gold cubes through a ricer into a bowl, then repeat with Sweet Potatoes. Use a potato masher if a ricer isn't available.
  4. Stir 2-3 tablespoons of butter into each bowl of potatoes and season with salt & pepper. Taste & adjust the amount of butter adding enough butter to make the potatoes creamy.
