Sweet potatoes used to be strickly a holiday thing but now they are all the rage! Every where you turn someone is creating something new with sweet potatoes! Sweet Potato Fries, Sweet Potato Burgers, Scalloped Sweet Potatos, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potato Soup, Sweet Potato Hummus and on and on and on! What the heck? How can there even be such a thing as Sweet Potato Hummus!
My family has been enjoying these Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes since 1990, which is when we found the recipe (pictured below) in our local newspaper. You remember newspapers, magazines and hard cover cook books right? Weird, I know but that’s how we used to find new recipe ideas! It seems antiquated now and I’m sure most of the under 30 crowd will never know the level of excitement that comes over you when you are flipping through a magazine or newspaper and come across a new recipe that you can’t wait to try! Ahhh…the memories! Those were the good old days, way before the Internet and, the biggest recipe box on the planet, Pinterest!
