4 Delicious After Thanksgiving Quick 'n Easy Recipes featuring Sweet Potatoes

 
The Fall harvest of full of hearty veggies and sweet potatoes are one of my favorites.  Sweet potatoes are so versatile and you can make everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts. This time of year, the harvest is plenty and the price is low.  I saw sweet potatoes at only 30 cents/ lb. 

Oh, why sweet potatoes you ask?  Well, a friend gifted me with a couple of tubers from her garden.  They're HUMONGOUS! 



I love sweet potatoes.  They're full of vitamins, iron and calcium and they're naturally sweet.

To showcase the versatility of this beloved plant, I decided to share a few of my favorite quick 'n easy recipes featuring sweet potatoes.

Oooh I love the sweet potato hummus idea. Hummus is one of our favorite snacks around here and that sounds super yum!

Sweet Potatoes are a favorite at my house! I always make a sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving. I love hummus, yet I've never made it with sweet potatoes before - yum!
Since we have never had sweet potato chocolate pudding I am very interested to see how this taste. Plus it is chocolate pudding and the family doesn't have to know there is sweet potato in it until after they eat it.
Oh nom nom nom! I love sweet potatoes and am always looking for a different way to use them. They are a MUST at our Thanksgiving table.

I am going to have to try all of these. My mom doesn't like sweet potatoes so I never grew up with them, but I really like them!

Mmm, yum, I'll have to try these. I enjoy sweet potatoes. I mostly enjoy them in the form of a casserole. So good!
I LOVE sweet potatoes. But sweet potato hummus and soup? You cannot begin to understand the excitement I am experiencing right now. I HAVE to make these.
Jenn said…
These look great. We cook with sweet potatoes all year round in our house.

The timing is perfect for this post. Not just because of Thanksgiving, but because I was just wondering what to make with sweet potatoes for dinner.

These are all so interesting, but I'm really intrigued by the sweet potato hummus.
Amy Smith said…
I have just started enjoying sweet potatoes the last 5 or so years. The soup sounds good to me!
Liz Mays said…
Oh cool! These are really good ideas. I bet we could make that soup a couple of times this year!
Ricci Ellis said…
I have to admit that I am not really a big fan of sweet potatoes. However your recipes sound good so I may have to step out of my comfort zone and try them!

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.
