    I like them mashed up with maple syrup, sour cream, and a chipotle in adobo added. Thanks to Food52 for that recipe.

  • sgump  on  September 25, 2016

    I like a baked (or, okay, microwaved) in-jacket sweet potato, which, after cutting open, I then top with spinach sauteed with lots of minced garlic and finish with a dollop of sour cream, salt, pepper, and freshly grated nutmeg: yum!

    FYI: the Twitter link that comes up for this in the Rafflecopter form is for "Damn Delicious," not "Sweet Potato Love."

  • sbh2006  on  September 25, 2016

    I love them every way, but my favorite is how they serve them in Japan: roasted over hot stones and served piping hot, the smell is incredible. I've been known to chase the yaki-imo truck across town to get my fix! Would love to win this, thanks to EYB for another great giveaway!

  • tennyogirl  on  September 26, 2016

    I'm with sbh2006. Lived in Kagoshima Japan for a couple of years and the yaki-imo truck is better than an ice cream truck!

    mashed with apple cider

  • KudosKitchen1  on  September 30, 2016

  • sarahawker  on  September 30, 2016

    I've made sweet potato latkes and used them as burger buns, they were amazing.

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  September 30, 2016

    I love sweet potatoes roasted

    As a child I hated sweet potatoes, now they are on my plate at least once a week. I like baked sweet potato fries coated with cinnamon, cayenne pepper and fresh rosemary. I drizzle them with a bit of honey after they're baked!

    I don't know yet, but I'm growing 9 different varieties this year, so we'll soon find out! 😉
    I hated them until recently – it was a sweet potato chipotle mash that made me reevaluate.

    I don't have much history cooking sweet potatoes since I never realized I could learn to like them (I generally don't like sweet vegetables, nor am I much of a fruit eater). However, I am learning that I can like sweet potatoes … just need to be judicious about which recipes I try to cook. Last winter I started roasting sweet potato wedges with chili spicing and liked that well enough. Here is to personal growth – I can learn to love sweet potatoes, yes I can!

  • lauriesk  on  October 14, 2016

    I love to peel and dice sweet potatoes and then roast them in the oven.

  • lhudson  on  October 15, 2016

  • snickity  on  October 15, 2016

    I was raised in the south, but reared by a mother from Nebraska. I am still trying to learn southern cooking as I love it. I do cook sweet potato casserole with pecans that everyone loves and requests.

    "What is your favorite way to enjoy sweet potatoes?" So far, it has to be the french-fried sweet potatoes drizzled in honey I had at a local restaurant in Seattle. Soooooo good!

  • ballen  on  October 17, 2016

    My mother's sweet potato casserole.

  • daniellespinato1  on  October 17, 2016
