    Sharon123's Note:

    A lovely mild spoon bread that makes a great addition to any meal! This can be made ahead and baked later. This recipe came courtesy of Ben Barker, Magnolia Grill, in Durham, N.C. Cook time does not include cooking of sweet potato. You could replace the potato with pumpkin for pumpkin spoon bread, or other squash. I might even try banana and see what happens!

      This is so good! The eggs make it very light, and the flavors of the sweet potato and cornmeal blend nicely. I love that there's very little sugar in this. It's easy to make, except it took me a long time to whisk in the cornmeal and flour-I think I needed to add them more slowly. I'll get it right next time!!!! Great homey recipe! Thanks~
