Holidays are coming and here is yet another sweet potato recipe. The thyme, garlic and red pepper gives great flavor to the sweet potatoes.
Instead of olive oil try using Pam or No Oil. Just spray the slices on both sides then shake them in the zip lock bag with the herbs. Use Yams if you prefer.
Simple yet so delicious, this one of my family's favorite sweet potato dishes and I have made this many times for the holidays and always receive rave reviews! --- If you double the recipe bake in a large roasting pan or use two 13x9 baking dishes, when I am making these for company, I use a large foil pan and just throw the pan away after, saves cleaning :)
I found this recipe in Cooking Light. I made a few changes and came up with the first "candied yams" dish my family really liked. Not too sweet. Beautiful presentation and wonderful flavor with the meringue trellised across top, but you could easily sprinkle a handful of mini marshmallows over the top if you would prefer. When I made it, I didn't put on the meringue top. The next day we had a second Thanksgiving with my kid's friends and I replated it, slightly mixing in the streusel and then added the meringue--oh so much more wonderful the second time around!
This is a great vegetable to accompany almost any meal and a great company dish. Does not taste like traditional sweet potatoes. I got this recipe from "Healthy Choices" cookbook and I tweaked it a bit.
This is the perfect side dish on a chilly Autumn evening. The apples give it just the right amount of sweetness, and it smells heavenly cooking. I actually cooked this in a smaller oval casserole dish and used 2 sweet potatoes and 3 apples, so obviously the amounts are very flexible. Just reduce the other ingredients and make sure you use enough OJ so that it covers about 2/3 of the sweet potatoes and apples. Yum! I got this wonderful recipe from my friend Shell Marr.
I found this recipe in a local church cookbook. I have not tried it myself, but I thought it sounded very interesting. I might experiment on my guests for Thanksgiving! Any other brave souls out there?
