If the actual recipe is for sweet potatoes with bacon and feta (which sounds really good) I would leave out the sugar, add some green onion and serve it along side salad greens (berries optional) with almonds or sunflower seeds tossed in and a light vinegarette dressing.

The hubby and I use sweet potatoes as a starch. :)

They sound lovely, thanks Carol

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

I have smashed baked sweet potatoes and made a biscuit dough, then added diced ham, bacon, green onion and shredded extra sharp cheddar – then added extra water so that I had a dumpling dough, that I then dropped by the ½ teaspoon into a pot of Vegetable soup ( soup contained NO meat at all). It’s very versatile as I have also used in Pork roast soup, turkey soup, pumpkin soup, and a fish stew. lol I have also used this dough as a crust for pot pies, spicy fruit pies, and muffins as well. This is beautiful way to use holiday leftovers; fantastic as muffins to go with a pork stew. Added sugar if desired – brown or white – stay away from confectioners as this weakens the dough like you added a cup of water mid-cooking. I have replaced the water with fruit juice (apple & pineapple) during mixing for muffins, just to kick it up as a breakfast food.

Dough recipe –
3 med baked sweet potato – smashed with nothing added
2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ C melted & cooled butter
¼ C milk

Just enough water to form the type of dough for the desired need (dumplings or biscuits and CHILL for use as pie crust of course :-)

Oven 350 / cook time 15 – 20 minutes for biscuits and muffins or until golden, for dumplings, just like any other dumpling.

I like brie with my baked-in-their-jacket sweet potatoes.

SP and butternut squash go well in soup or for a roast veg combo SPs, butternut squash, red onions, bell peppers and garlic
