I still think there's no better combo than sweet potatoes with pork, or prosciutto in this case. I'm a retired physician and am glad that sweet potatoes are being given their due as nutritional powerhouses. —Helen Conwell, Portland, Oregon

MY REVIEW

I used a thin sliced German countryham, as that's what I had on hand. What an interesting mix of flavors and textures. I'll make this again, for sure!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2013

I wasn't sure how this combination of ingredients would taste, but thought it would be interesting to try. It was excellent and the whole family enjoyed it. Unusal combination of flavors and textures that resulted in an excellent side dish.
