Hi everyone, I promised I would be back with some more holiday recipe ideas. This recipe I developed a few years back with the addition of our marinade line. I try to keep some useful and versatile recipe ideas for all our products. This time around I kept looking at our Praline Honey Ham Marinade and thinking. Then, like a bolt of lightening striking me off my feet the obvious was right in front of me….and of course, I was like….duh, Cindy! Sweet goodness with a little crunch is never a bad idea.
If your holiday table is not complete without a sweet potato recipe, give this a try. Or better yet, it is so good in place of any typical potato side dish. I personally love it with grilled chicken or even steak. It is a fun alternative and again, for all those kitchen challenged, I try to cater to you! Please enjoy and let me know what you guys think.
