Cat Lover, thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I have been trying to get more sweet potatoes into my diet, but I can't say that I like them that much. This recipe sounds like it'll be really good. I can't wait to try it!

We loved it! You can also add cubed sweet potatoes to your stews and other soups. I also sometimes add some to my regular potatoes when I fix mashed or whipped potatoes; gives them a nice color too!
