"Feeling a bit tired of the generic canned yams you see every Thanksgiving? These are so much more exciting than the marshmallow-topped tubers that you’ve been serving year after year! These stuffed sweet potatoes are so much heartier and elegant. Personally, I was never a fan of the marshmallow-topped dish in the first place…it’s just too sweet. Thanksgiving was the original farm-to-table meal. The “original” Thanksgiving meal, celebrated between the pilgrims and natives of Plymouth featured foods that were easily grown or gathered. So this meant that the meal was bland by modern standards: corn, venison, and duck were likely all that was served. Sweet potatoes came along later and became a staple by the 1800s. We’re glad they’ve stuck around!"
