Vermont-Style Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Onion


(4-5 Servings)

1 Bag Petite Steamers (24oz)
2T Butter
1T Olive Oil
1 Medium Sweet Onion (sliced thin)
¼ cup Maple Sugar (or ½ cup Maple Syrup)
1t Fresh Ground Black Pepper (plus additional to taste)
2t Kosher Salt (plus additional to taste)
Hot Water

  1. Place Petite Steamers bag seam side up on microwavable plate. DO NOT cut or puncture bag. Package will inflate and may make hissing and popping noises.
  2. Microwave on HIGH for 8 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes after cooking.
  3. Heat oil and butter in small sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Add onion, sugar (or syrup), salt, and pepper.
  5. Sauté until onion is golden brown (2-3 minutes), add some water a little at a time if pan becomes dry. Set aside.
  6. Cut open Petite Steamers bag (Be careful, Sweet Potatoes will be hot). Peel sweet potatoes and mash to desired consistency.
  7. Fold-in onion mixture and enjoy!

(If you’d like to make this dish a little spicier add some red pepper flakes to taste)
