Now…onto the taters. We all have that one vegetable that we could NEVER get sick of. Mine? SWEET POTATOES. Every time I’m in the grocery store, I swing by and grab a sweet potato even if the recipe I’m making doesn’t call for it. You never know when you’re going to have a sweet potato fry craving! Seriously, I’m in love with a vegetable (sorry Mark, you’ll have to share me).

Another great thing about this majestic root vegetable is that there are so many different ways to prepare it. YOU CAN…

  • Spiralize it into NOODLES
  • Grate it into a HASH
  • Chop it into FRIES
  • Mash them up into MASHED potatoes
  • oooorrr bake them and STUFF them with all of your favorite toppings (WINNER)

Baked potato bar was my all time favorite hot lunch in high school. Everyone got a spud and then you could make it your own by adding veggies, meat, cheese, and everything in between. PEOPLE, all you have to do is wash up your sweet potatoes, oil them, salt & pepper them, and then throw them in the oven to bake for about an hour.

Then? TOPPINGS!
