Sweet Morning Potato
You might know that, nutrition-wise, sweet potatoes are the bomb diggity, especially compared to other tubers, like the bland, starchy, mealy, actual potato-potato (not to potato-bash too much - people who love potatoes are defensive when others, say, revile them. You potato-defenders know who you are). All this healthfulness despite the fact that they taste like dessert... but did you ever think of having them for breakfast? Me either, 'til I saw this post a while back at The Kitchen: Sweet Morning Potato. With 2% Greek yogurt, honey, and slivered almonds, this dish was filling and sweet and provided the perfect complement of flavors. Sweet potatoes: they're not just for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving anymore!

Ok, I know it's really healthy, but I so can't do it...
Oh, YUM! We have roasted sweet potatoes in the morning sometimes, with olive oil and garlic and cheese melted on top, and I make homefries with them, as well, but I never thought of maple syrup. That really sounds great.
Oh yum! I loves me a sweet potato.
I just can't really get used to eating sweet potatoes. Too much like carrots for me.
I really like yams (I think I eat those more than sweet potatoes but I get confused all the time) with coconut and lime. This is the recipe that what I make now is based on. Your recipe sounds really good (but with soy yogurt for me, of course).
My grandfather used to make us fried sweet potatoes for breakfast when I was a kid. He would peel them and cut them into thick slices, then pan fry them in a teeny bit of oil, and salt them. Yum, yum!!!
Yes, Sweet potatoes are really good for you but when I stew them in a 1/2 pound of butter and a pound of brown sugar I think that sort of changes things.
I was so happy to discover that same info just a few months ago! Yay for sweet potatoes. I could eat them for every meal. I'll definately try your breakfast recommendation.
How exactly did you cook the potato in the first place? Boil? Bake? I can never get my sweet potatoes to turn out right, and unfortunately, the recipe assumes that you're an old hand at cooking sweet potatoes. I'd like to know what you suggest.
What a neat idea! I'm totally going to try this!
Yuck! Yams! YUCK!
BUT, Japanese sweet potatoes (the ones that are yellow on the inside and purple on the outside) are AMAZING, and they make the prettiest plants when they sprout.
Breaded french-fried sweet potatoes, sweet potato pie, sweet potato casserole, buttery baked sweet potatoes, so many choices, so tasty! My daughter will not touch anything orange except oranges (two year olds are wierd) but she loves her them sweet potato fries!
Who'd've thunk it?
It actually sounds pretty good to me and my sweet tooth.
I don't like sweet potatoes at night, but this was good this morning somehow.
With vanilla yogurt mine didn't need any syrup.
Thank you so much for this delicious link. It'll be a nice sunday morning treat. Bake the potatoes the night before, turn on the oven with the morning, warm the potato, and with tea, oh the wonder!
(hello...,I am new to your blog, and a fellow park sloper. I found you by searching park slope knit shop. Thought I'd say greetings!)
I tried this for dinner as a breakfast-for-dinner sort of thing - delish!
I love the sound of this recipe - I'll have to try it! Thanks for sharing.
I just came across your blog for the first time today - I really like what your site. I took up knitting last year and have my last unfinished project collecting dust in my closet. Looking at some of your knitting posts is reminding me that I should get back into it - it's so fun!
