Our Top 10 Sweet Potato Recipes

Thanksgiving can be stressful. There are menus to plan, turkeys to roast, and houses to clean. But did you ever consider that maybe the real reason that you're dissatisfied with Thanksgiving is that you're bored with your menu?

With this resolve in mind, we compiled this list of our 10 best sweet potato recipes. Sweet potatoes are incredibly versatile and, in contrast to traditional Thanksgiving potatoes, taste both savory and sweet. There's no reason that Thanksgiving potatoes must be mashed, and our list features recipes for fried and baked sweet potatoes that are just as delicious and seasonally appropriate as traditional mashed potatoes.
