The tartness of a little goat cheese plays down that sweetness of the potato in this recipe for Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Goat Cheese. I find a ratio of 1 pound of sweet potatoes to one ounce of goat cheese works best.
2 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
2 ounces plain goat cheese, room temperature
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Pierce the potatoes three times and place in preheated oven on a sheet of aluminum foil.
Bake for one hour or until a fork easily slides through the potato.
Let sit for 15 minutes to cool for easier handling then peel.
Use a fork to combine the sweet potato, goat cheese, salt and pepper.
