5 Ways to Enjoy Sweet Potatoes in the Fall!

  • Bake ‘em into chips or fries! Thinly slice a large sweet potato and brush lightly with olive oil. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.
  • Sweet Potato Pancakes. Use shredded sweet potatoes to make. Breakfast will be a sweet, and nutritious hit! Recipe available at www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.com
  • Mash ‘em. Steam peeled potato chunks for about 10 minutes until tender, and mash with a dash of orange juice.
  • The New Potato Salad. Substitute sweet potatoes for regular spuds in your favorite potato salad recipe.
  • Top your salad! Cube sweet potatoes that are canned in light syrup (drained and rinsed, of course!) and add to your green salad or a grain salad for a potassium boost!
