This side dish is a mealtime essential with savory flavors from sweet potatoes stirred in with heavy cream, buttery garlic and Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese. You'll also find notes from fresh sage in this meal that can accompany any main dish.

  • 4 large sweet potatoes (2-1/2 to 3 lbs.), peeled, cubed
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese
  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with cold water and add salt to water if desired. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 14 minutes or until potatoes are very tender. Drain potatoes in a colander.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the same saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Add sage; cook 1 minute. Add cream; bring to a boil.
  3. Put hot cooked potatoes through a ricer or press through a strainer.* Gradually add the potatoes to the cream mixture, beating with a wooden spoon or large whisk. Gradually beat in remaining butter 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring vigorously after each addition.
  4. Stir in cheese until melted. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
