Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork or the tip of a paring knife; set aside. Cut off the top of the heads of garlic to expose the cloves, trimming about 1/4 inch off of the top of each clove. You may need to trim individual cloves along the sides of each head. Brush the cut cloves with the olive oil, then nestle each head into a piece of aluminum foil.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes and garlic cloves directly on the oven racks. Bake for about 1 hour, removing the sweet potatoes once they have softened, and removing the garlic heads once they are tender and nicely browned.
  4. Peel the sweet potatoes, and place into a mixing bowl. Squeeze the individual garlic cloves into the bowl, then add the butter, sour cream, cream cheese, and cayenne pepper. Mash until smooth, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Scrape the mashed potatoes into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish, and return to the oven for about 15 minutes to reheat.

My husband and I have both been put off by sweet potatoes our entire lives due to everyone always adding lots of extra sugar. I knew there had to be something out there that would make a savory sweet potato dish, and dag nabit, this is it! The dish is still sweet, but thankfully not overbearingly so. We added some prepared creamy horseradish and some fresh grated parm to the top before popping it into the oven, but otherwise did everything to spec. Next time will omit the cream cheese and add a little chicken broth. We will be makeing this again!

Smooth and rich. I was concerned about the garlic taste combined with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, but they go together well. The cayenne pepper adds warmth as you eat them. This will become a Thanksgiving favorite for us!

These are good - and garlicky!. Depending on the size of your sweet potatoes, you may want to add the sour cream slowly. Mine got a little looser than I bargained for. The cayenne is a nice touch, but go easy unless you know you love it. Thanks for the recipe!
