This recipe certainly represents our region, as our state is famous for its ham and the South is known for sweet potatoes. It's one of the very best sweet potato recipes I've ever tried. It makes a great light meal all by itself.

"This has a lot of flavor with the combination of sweet and salty. It makes a great all in one dish as well. I'm not a sweet potato lover but my in-laws gave me sweet potatoes from their garden and I had leftover ham from the holidays, of which I just cut into small pieces. I could not find the frozen California blend vegetables so I used a different blend (Green Giant Antioxidant blend) and it tasted fine. My husband really likes sweet potatoes so he thought this was very good. I would make it again."
