Everyone knows that holiday meals are all about the side dishes, and this Hot Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe will probably bump a few of the more traditional options off your plate! These sweet potatoes have only 6 ingredients, but two of them are browned butter and hot honey- what more do you need to know? Can you make them in 30 minutes? Yes! If I can't find hot honey, can I make my own? Yes- just check out the tip below! Condensed cream of mushroom soup adds savory flavor and creaminess to the mixture, making Hot Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes a perfect blend of savory, sweet and heat!
Heat the butter in a small skillet over low heat until melted. Cook and stir just until the butter is golden brown with browned bits at the bottom of the skillet (using a light-colored skillet will make this easier to see). Immediately transfer the brown butter (with the browned bits) into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.
Place the sweet potatoes into a 6-quart saucepot and add water to cover. Heat over high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 12 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
While the potatoes are cooking, heat the soup, milk and thyme sprigs in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until hot. Remove and discard the thyme sprigs.
Drain the potatoes in a colander. Return the potatoes to the saucepan and add the soup mixture. Mash the sweet potato mixture until smooth. Stir in 4 tablespoons hot honey and the brown butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve drizzled with the remaining 1 tablespoon hot honey and sprinkled with additional fresh thyme leaves, if desired.
