I adore sweet potatoes.

Yet for some reason, I have never been a fan of the traditional marshmallow-topped sweet potato dish most cooks serve around the holidays.

They are usually too sweet and too mushy for my taste.

Therefore every holiday season I make a point to create some sort of untraditional sweet potato dish my family will love…

Hoping they will be so thrilled with what I make, no one will be angry I skipped the marshmallows. *wink*

    Is there any way to make this ahead of time and then warm them up?

      Hi Jenna,

      You could definitely make these ahead. Then reheat in the oven at 350 degrees F. :)
