I've seen some interesting recipes for Sweet Potatoes beyond the traditional baked such as sweet potato fries and sweet potato pie but was wondering what the bestsweet potato recipe is? Are there any other variations I can use for the holidays?

Please let me know your bestsweet potato recipes. I don't need the exact ingredients if you don't want to give your secrets away, just a guide of sweet potatoes would be great!

  1. No need to look further. You can skip the marshmallows.

    1. mashed+chevre+chipotle=sublime

      1. I cube my sweet potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and then brown them a bit in some oil. Then pour cola over the top, about 1/3 of the way up, and drop in a small spoonful of adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles in adobo). Cover and cook until soft, stirring occasionally and adding liquid if needed. Sweet, salty, spicey and smokey!

        1. mashed with butter and maple syrup

          1. Cubed , tossed wilt olive oil,salt, pepper and garam masala, roasted in oven on a cookie sheet.

              Bake, slice, alternate with Orange slices, drizzle with OJ and Butter, bake again until heated through.
