Sweet Potato Help

So we just baked two huge Sweet ptotatos. What now? The only way I have eaten them in the past is with tons of butter and marshmellows, or in a pie.

Do you guys have any recipes? Hints?

I just eat the whole damn thing straight.

If you are post workout throw some marshmellows on it. We ain’t looking.

i eat em plain, they are really good

Butter sounds goood. Look out though. With all them precursors ya might get a bad case of the roid rages.

You could dice them with some onions and “fry” them nice and crispy in a nonstick pan - healthy hash browns.

I like to dice up raw ones (scrubbed w/ skins on) with onions, toss with a little olive oil and montreal steak seasoning (coarse salt & pepper mix) and bake for about an hour til they get crispy. yummmm

Well, not for him.
That sounds good.

Yup Plain. Or dress them like a regular potateoe onion dill etc. Or I like a lil cinnaman and splenda on them , or salsa and cheese.

Just get creative, if what you make sucks well dont make that again. LOL

Have fun with them taters,
Phill

Mmmm…Sweet taters… I take the skins off, add splenda and cinnamon, and a coulple of tsp of Smart Balance. Mash them up and enjoy. Taste like sweet tater pie filling. Good stuff.

Lol! Don’t forget, I have “baggage” and you like to lock kids in closets. It’d never work…

Joebob’s recipe sounds great, too. I don’t know why I’m reading about yummy sweet potatoes when I’m going to start the V-Diet tomorrow!

you gotta admit…it’d keep 'em out of trouble and you’ll know where they are…
:wink:

Besides, my closet is the size of my first dorm room.

put some hot sauce on them and eat 'em like a champ! If you get adventurous, try habanero sauce.

I forgot to mention to add pecans or walnuts.

In Seattle I once picked up a sweet potato the size of a regulation NFL football. Now that was big!

It is hard to beat sweet potato french fries.

Try some cut as cottage fries with Smart Balance.

I agree, I can eat sweet potatoes straight (with some salt). I usually boil them so they are soft & wet enough to go down.

I did not think I could when I first tried it but they tasted great that way.

A properly prepared sweet potato is sweet enough to eat on its own. Butter is always good on them. Molasses is a good sweetener if they aren’t sweet enough. I’ve even had them mashed with some cumin and lime juice…goes well with roasted yellow pepper soup and some turkey. My favorite is to mash them up, add some carmelized onions, cane syrup, chicken stock, and pecans…makes a nice gravy that goes well smothered all over some pork chops. Mmmmm, Mmmmm. I need to go eat lunch now.

We dice them up and use them in place of potatoes in potato salad. They work fine.
