Publisher Photo
You'll find that this dish is very versatile—more special than everyday but easy enough to make anytime. Sweet potatoes aren't as popular here in New England as in some parts of the country. I had a friend from Maryland many years ago, however, and we enjoyed swapping recipes. This one's a combination of hers and one I already had in my file.
