  • 3 Medium to Large Sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 Garlic bulb, top cut off
  • 1 Tsp. Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • ¼ Cup Half and Half, milk or heavy cream
  • Kosher Salt & Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the bulb of garlic on a small piece of tinfoil. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap the garlic in the foil into a little bundle. Put on a baking sheet along with the three potatoes. Cut small slits in the potatoes so steam can escape during baking.
  • Place the baking sheet in the middle of the oven and roast for 60-80 minutes until the potatoes are soft and the garlic is fragrant and soft.
  • Let the potatoes cool a little so you can handle them. Cut them in half and scoop out the potato into a bowl. Squeeze the soft garlic out of their skins right into the potato mixture. Add the butter, half and half and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix the potatoes mixture until light and fluffy. Add more half and half if needed. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Pile into a shallow serving bowl and enjoy!
