    I've not seen a leg in a stool, but, then again, I am not a cannibal.

    They’re great friends with the bacon family. Black beans hang out with them a lot too. Party! Sweet potatoes! I love these things so many ways.

    A little mood music for the fan club-
    ( I'm not a huge sweet potato guy, but Cracker rocks!)

    You say (sweet) potato, I say (sweet) potahto.

    After all I yam what I yam.

    And I would gladly pay you next Tuesday for a sweet potato today.

    My dislike for the food item could move mountains, but I generally like Cracker and that song is kind of a fun, rare balancing act between silly and rockin.

    (Our holiday table traditionally had sweet potato as one side and also rutabaga as another. I kind of liked the rutabaga, and not the sweet potato, which put me in the minority on both counts.)

    Weekly big fan here for decades. One of nature’s power foods. I slice them thin, overlap them on foil, drizzle olive oil on them, then wrap the foil completely closed and place them on the BBQ with what ever else I’m cooking. We interchange yams and sweet potatoes depending on what else we are preparing. We have been more on the yam kick this summer, but we will most likely bakes sweet potatoes during the winter months.

    BTW, during my 15 years as a competitive ultra sport weekend warrior and strict vegetarian, these became a very important part of my diet. Huge nutritional value per bite.

    I've tried them a few times.... I do not like them Sam I Am. I just don't like sweet potatoes or yams.

    There's very few sweet lunch or dinner foods I like. Breakfast and dessert are a different story.

    A REAL southern home cooked style sweet potato pie.... now that's the stuff dreams are made of right there! It's got to be fresh, THICK, hot, and homemade with all of the naughty fattening sweet stuff ;) Top it off with REAL whipped cream and man.... you'll get a taste of one of the finest inventions humans ever came up with :cool:

    I enjoy both but prefer the orange sweet potato over the white yam. In a lot of Caribbean cooking the yam is the preferred item. It’s classical west African and has its place

    A baked sweet potato can easily be the centerpiece of any menu. Cubed and gently boiled, ala parsley potatoes, is a lovely side dish. Mashed is a great dish. I hate the typical Thanksgiving mashed with marshmallows. To me that’s a major abomination.

    My wife makes up a sweet potato casserole with pineapples and some other stuff in it, covered in small marshmallows that everyone absolutely loves. I always eat more of it than I should.

    Oh man TD.... I can almost taste it! Ya'll would have to beat me to it LOL!! ;) If she doesn't already have one, have her find a good southern recipe for a sweet potato pie.... My mom (a southern bell) made these during the holidays and they were gone in 5 minutes. IMO it's the best pie on the planet, if done the non-PC way ;)
