Garlic Sweet Potato Mash

This is a combination of creamy mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, seasoned with mellow, buttery garlic. The flavors are out of this world together, and the sweet potatoes bulk up the nutrition value. Great with gravy, or without.

6-8 baking potatoes, scrubbed and rinsed
2-3 large sweet potatoes or yams
3 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
1/3 c. butter
1 c. milk
2-3 t. salt, more as needed
black pepper as desired

Peel sweet potatoes. Cut all potatoes into thirds. Cover with water in large pot. Add garlic cloves. Bring to boil and cook until tender, testing with fork. Drain. Do not discard garlic pieces. Using potato masher or hand mixer, mash potatoes slightly. Add butter and milk. Stir, allowing butter to melt. Mash further until creamy, or desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, mixing thoroughly. Taste. Adjust seasoning.
