Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • There are several different types of sweet potatoes that are available, and they may be also labeled as “yams.” You can use any variety (or a mix of varieties) in this dish. Note that the orange-fleshed varieties generally are sweeter and take a little longer to cook.
  • Chopped, leftover sweet potatoes work great in scrambled eggs or omelets, soups or stews, pizza, and stir-fried greens.
