Cool and peel

Leave the potatoes to cool enough so that they can be handled, gently peel off the skin and place them into the pot.

Finish the mash

Place a saucepan over a medium heat. Add 3/4 of the milk, the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Begin mashing the potatoes with the whisk until they reach a uniform consistency. If they seem a little stiff, add the rest of the milk. Remove them from the heat.

And there you have it, your Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes are ready for the table.
