the perfect cook-out acoutrement. Growing up, my only exposure to sweet potatoes was the mushy kind topped with brown sugar and marshmellows. Ugh. And I wouldn't touch sweet potatoes because of that dish. For years. Well, silly me. Look at all I missed!
Since this is one of the biggest cook-out weekends on the calendar each year, you need something simple, easy, and delicious. This version of a sweet potato will deliver.
From one of my favorite cooking mags, Cooking Light, the perfect side dish.
