  • Bake, flipping halfway through, until the sweet potatoes are very tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 45 minutes. Remove sweet potatoes and garlic from oven; set aside. Continue to bake russet potatoes until very tender, about 15 minutes more. Remove from oven; let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Peel potatoes. Pass through a ricer or a food mill into a medium bowl. Squeeze garlic from skins into bowl with potatoes. Stir in butter, parsley, sage, salt, and pepper. Stir in yogurt, and serve.

I've made these potatoes several times for Thanksgiving & Christmas and it's always been a hit. For my taste, the garlic is a little too strong, so I cut back on it. And I did find it needed a little bit of warmed milk to thin it out. Other than that, I made as directed.

I really liked this and will do it again. It's difficult to press the sweet potatoes through the ricer though, a food processor might be a better choice. The first i made these i had a little bit too much yoghurt, the second time it was much better.
