Recipe by Kristy D.

This was a recipe posted in Real Simple magazine. My Mother-in-law made it and it is wonderful! The puff pastry bakes up to a wonderful golden brown and is so light and flaky. This could be used with any kind of cheese and would be great with some cooked onions added to the mixture. I personally don't think you can taste the sweet potato very much, but it adds a slightly sweet flavor.
