A favorite sweet potato recipe of mine is a grilled (in foil) sweet potato. It’s basically candied on its own. I just add some butter and it’s like having dessert and a Thanksgiving casserole all in one. They are so delicious and good for you that I feed my dog one of these at least once a week. I’m pretty sure there are weeks that my dog eats better than I do but we both win with sweet potatoes!
