My DH would have my funeral next week if I did that to his sacred mac and cheese.
We are growing sweet potatoes this year, our first time, and I love them. Interesting recipe, thanks for sharing it.

I want to try the ATK method of making mac and cheese. They cooked the macaroni in enough milk to soften the pasta and then mix in the cheese. I keep a box of powdered milk for cooking. And a sweet potato is on my list for today's shopping. Hmmm. I would have to serve the potato on the side.

This is a great recipe for those who are lactose intolerant.

For a very long time I only wanted the blue box. Now the stuff is so salty its hard to eat.

The sweet potato sauce is good, next I want to try using it as queso dip. That has to be good.

First time hearing about that method but it sounds really good and best of all simple.

I've been using the Serious Eats version with additions of things such as bacon and it's really good.
