With a few simple ingredients you can elevate a standard mid-week meal to something really special.

  • 500g sweet potatoes peeled and chopped roughly
  • 2 stalks of fresh thyme
  • 3 tbs pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs heavy cream
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Steam the sweet potato with the fresh thyme until tender.
  2. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes, uncovered, allowing excess moisture to evaporate. Once cooked remove the thyme stems.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes, butter and cream in a large bowl then mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt & pepper – add  maple syrup – stir well and taste – add more maple if you like.
  4. Cook sausages while sweet potatoes are steaming. Serve on the bed of mash.
