In this unusual mash, boiled sweet potatoes are combined with crumbled grilled sausage (use your own favorite variety) and just enough olive oil to moisten and chopped cilantro as a garnish. It would make a delightful additon to the Thanksgiving menu or any meal where you'll be serving roast poultry or pork. It can also be the main attraction, with a simple green salad or braised greens rounding out the meal.
- Bake the sweet potatoes until tender. Once they have baked, peel the sweet potatoes.
- In a bowl, add the peeled potatoes and mash with a fork.
- In a skillet on low heat, grill the sausage on both sides.
