Sweet potatoes are a favorite around here because of their flexibility. They can be served right from the oven with just a little butter, salt and pepper, and make a fine side dish. They can be loaded with toppings like a jacket potato, and are also delicious as a pie. They can be served sweet and candied, savory, or hot and spicy.
What I’m getting at is that don’t expect to this to be the last sweet potato dish you’ll find on this site.
This dish was created on the fly as side for the Vermont Schnitzel meal, but may end up becoming a Thanksgiving staple, with a few tweaks. The version here includes a few modifications based on our initial experiences.
