It’s a Sweet Potato type of day

November 13, 2017

Who doesn’t love sweet potatoes? If you don’t then you must exit this page immediately. I love sweet potato but I have a confession to make….I don’t like the pie. I love to make sweet potato souffle more than the pie. I have a quick recipe for you to make your own and when I say your own….this recipe is for one person. I promise you don’t have to share it. I just did a pancake recipe with sweet potatoes too if you want to check that out for a new take on breakfast.


  • 1 large or 2 small cooked sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup pecans

Take one or two (depending on the size I used two) potatoes and bake them until soft. Mash it up until you get about two cups of potatoes.

Mix all of your ingredients above with your mashed potatoes (add egg in last) Pour into a small dish

I use a small glass dish that I have just for me but you can use a ramekin dish Whatever you use grease it or spray it down with pam

Put your pecans on top and bake for about 20 minutes on 350 degrees

You can add marshmallows if you want I hate it but some people love it.

Don’t add this until you have baked the above. Add your marshmallows and then put back in the oven for 10 minutes or until marshmallows are brown.

I am not sharing my dish with anyone but I can share with you some other sweet potato recipes that you have to make this holiday season

Apples and Sweet Potato…this is a must try

After all this Halloween Candy…low carb is the it thing to do

Honey is a secret that must be kept to yourself when it comes to sweet potato .Y’all can’t share this one

Pecans in Sweet potato is like heaven on earth

I worked for a Paleo company on social media a while back….learned a lot of things

This makes my pancake recipe above look like dirt

Ok…..I think we have gone too far with the dinner rolls (will make this immediately)

I am not a baker but if I can find someone to do this for me….

My slow cooker is my baby and to know that I can cook this in it….#winning

I see that Pumpkin season isn’t over until maybe Christmas

This Sweet Potato dish would make a great side item

For all my gluten-free people this one is for you

I still haven’t used my pressure cooker, now I may have to bring it out

I love easy dishes and this is an easy one

I love this one and the photography…..yes I am a photographer so this one speaks to my photo soul

So there you have it….some great holiday dishes for you to try that are easy and fits every lifestyle. Tell me how you make your sweet potato? I just noticed there was no sweet potato pie on this list. If you have a sweet potato pie recipe put the link in the comments and I will share in my newsletter/ Facebook page!

    There are no sweet potatoes eaten in our house, but I know my Nana loves them. People either love them or hate them 🙂

    I don’t like marshmallows anywhere near my sweet potatoes! I always make our favorite sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving. It’s my favorite side dish. Now I’m craving sweet potatoes.

    I love sweet potatoes. They are great on their own, but I have a few recipes I make with them that my family enjoys.

    Yum, I just love sweet potatoes. I tend to make mine unhealthy with cinnamon butter and marshmallows though. But I’m still eating a sweet potato at least 😉

    I LOVE YOUR STYLE! Make it for YOURSELF! I often get in trouble at home for making single servings of things. The side-eyes that I get from my husband and children are HILARIOUS! But that’s okay. I’mma keep doing me. This looks delicious. My dad isn’t a custard pie eater, but we’ll see if he’ll try this for Thanksgiving.

    I love sweet potatoes! My very quick way to eat it is just to boil it and when eating, I just dip it over the brown sugar. Sometimes eating it all alone especially when I want to take a diet.

    I have never tried sweet potato pancake and this is my first time hearing about it. Back in my country we mostly bake sweet potato pudding which I love so much…

    We love sweet potatoes. Pie and all. Bake a big one and add some butter and cinnamon and you have a great side.

    I don’t make sweet potatoes as I don’t really care much for them. Hubby on the other hand loves them, he would really enjoy this recipe.

    You don’t like the pie?!? Blasphemy I tell you! That’s just because you never had one of my mom’s sweet potato pies!! Personally, I like them roasted to the point where the skin just falls off and I enjoy them just as is in their natural state.

    Thank you for the recipe. Now I have something else to do with the sweet potatoes other than making sweet potato fries. Saving the recipe and making this on the weekend.
