I just got word that the guest who usually supplies our Thanksgiving table with sweet potatoes (a traditional Texan casserole with marshmallows) is not going to be able to make it this year, so I'm finally free to make sweet potatoes that DON'T taste like dessert! Would love to take a look at your favorite recipes. I'm not opposed to a "sweet" preparation, but I don't want another dessert - i.e., no marshmallows, minimal added sugar. Butter is AOK!
I'm considering these Thyme Roasted sweet potatoes from Epi: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... - seems like a nice simple preparation that will allow the glory of the sweet potato to shine through.
I've also made Rosemary and Parmesan roasted sweet potatoes from Epi with excellent results: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... I love sweet potatoes with salty cheese or other salty things - in fact, whipped sweet potatoes with Stilton or Gorgonzola are one of my all-time favorites (or the low-brow version, sweet potato fries with blue cheese salad dressing).
Any other can't-miss recipes out there?
