Let’s talk about one of the most controversial Thanksgiving dishes.
At least it’s pretty controversial in our house…
and by controversial, I mean everyone else hates it and I love it!
Sweet potatoes covered in brown sugar and marshmallows!!!
I am just curious…do you love or hate this delicious veggie?
And yes, I realize that I just called a dish that is loaded with sugar
and marshmallows a vegetable:-)
You’re right…it should be part of the dessert tray with the amount of sugar that I put in it!!!
Last week I wondered if I could trick my kids into eating sweet potatoes…
and I would have gotten away with it if I had remembered to put away
the list of treats that I was baking for the week.
(that list just keeps getting longer and longer each week:-)
But my daughter was so grossed out by what I had written
so she blabbed about it to the boys.
I decided to go ahead and make it anyway for an after school snack.
Maybe they will forget about the offending vegetable…
I got all of them to try it without too much fussing.
The verdict from the sweet potato haters in my family was…
it is very good and it doesn’t taste like sweet potatoes.
I am thinking this would be the perfect way to start
out eating on Thanksgiving day.
Plus, think about the healthy factor…
you are eating a veggie for breakfast:-)
