Sweet Sweet Potato Recipes

It was a big deal when I discovered sweet potatoes. I don’t remember eating them growing up, so it when I found out about them I feel like I became an adult. I mean, here was a totally new type of potato with tons of flavor and a whole lot of nutritional value (including off the charts vitamin A). In a head-to-head showdown, sweet potatoes outperform white potatoes (though they both have their good points). It made me want to find new ways to eat them, whether for healthy dinners, savory sides, delicious breakfasts or anything in between. Here are a few great options.
