That is our favorite sweet potato recipe - perfect for those diabetics or those like me that don't care for the really sweet sweet potato casseroles.

I would love to hear all the tasters reviews of these recipes. I like "Roasted Sweet potatos with Onions" The Amaretto in them is perfect.

We love sweet potatoes, unfortunately our extended family not such big fans. So I don't make them on Thanksgiving. But my husband and I eat them all year long. Our favorite it grilling them...http://allrecipes.com/recipe/grilled-sweet-potatoes-2/detail.aspx

Putting sweet potatoes in your chili makes a much healthier chili and gives an earthy flavor. This recipe calls for pre-roasting the potatoes with seasoning, makes a wonderful difference in the flavor and texture of the potatoes... http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sweet-Potato-and-Black-Bean-Chili-2/Detail.aspx?prop24=RD_RelatedRecipes

We roll ours whole in molasses, cover them in foil like a white potato and either bake them or grill them depending on the weather.

They grow sweet potatoes behind my house in a large field. I don't really care for them. when I was a kid I would eat them with brown sugar on them, and they were good that way. I just cant deal with all that sugar now days. My wife likes them however for some reason.

I like to bake the sweet potato till soft then peel and mash mine with butter or cut them in thick slices and fry or make french fries but cook them on a micro-safe plate for 3 minutes on high and I have a delicious serving of fries without the salt and oil. I also slice a sweet potato thin and llay the slices in a little shortening and fry them crisp and drain or if i dont want the oil and salt I microwave the chips on high for 3 minutes. I also use the sweet potatoes to make candied potatoes and alsdo those really good sweet potato pies.

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
