    I got really hungry reading about the Feb. topic on sweet potatoes. But I can't really decide what meat to make with them. They really don't stand up to fish (in my opinion, anyway) and we had pork roast this past week (for 3 days in a row.
    I really need some suggestions. We are trying to eat less beef, so don't have that.
    Guess I can go with shrimp or chicken since that's what I have on hand.
    Any suggestions or recipes?
    Thanks.......I need some new ideas. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Here is a link for chicken and sweet potato recipes. Perhaps a chicken pie with a sweet potato crust, or maybe a chicken, sweet potato and barley soup?

    Cranberry Chicken With Sweet Potatoes

    I just made this again the other night, YUM!
    Just be sure to cut the sweet potatoes super thin, I use a mandolin, or they may not soften enough

    Here are not so many links, but some great ways to use sweet potatoes. If you just do a search for sweet potato stew or soup; there are tons of recipes, using all different meats

    Sweet potato cakes topped with blackened or spicy shrimp; the shrimp can also be in a creamy cajun type of sauce
    You can also add ham to sweet potato cakes

    Sweet potato stews, there are a ton on here using beef, chicken, pork, and seafood

    Sweet potato soups, another long list of lots from creamy to chunky, some vegetarian, some not

    Sweet potato has is a great way to incorporate ham, chicken, or shrimp.

    Sweet potato is great pureed, but NOT sweet, savory is fantastic used as a bed to serve a maple glazed salmon

    Sweet potato pie; also sweet potatoes used as a topping for Shepherds Pie.

    Sweet potato and black bean tacos are fantastic or quesadillas

    I make these, and they are really good and easy. I added a few things, but delicious

    I haven't made this particular recipe, but make a similar one and it is very good.

    This is a really nice salad which you could easily add ham to

    This is a fantastic dish
    http://www.aslolife.com/2012/03/13/sweet-potato-crusted-fish-with-a-apple-cilantro-salsa/
    You don't have to make the salsa, but I did; I cut the apples much smaller, but it was delicious
    You could a variety of fish

    Another easy dish is to saute bacon that is diced; then add sweet potatoes, onion, garlic and apples you want everything diced fine.. Stuff inside a chicken breast with a pocket cut. Reduce apple cider, chicken broth and white wine. Drizzle over the top.

    You can also use that same base and add to stuffing cubes. Makes a wonderful stuffing for a whole chicken

    Thanks EVERYONE ! I have saved this whole list.....every recipe looks so good.
    I am going to have to buy lots of sweet potatoes in the near future. Wish I didn't live in the desert and could grow my own.
