25 Fantastic Sweet Potato Recipes

by Alli

I’ve loved sweet potatoes ever since I was a little girl. I like them baked and filled with butter and cinnamon. I adore them casseroled (made-up word alert!) and topped with a flour, butter and pecan mixture. Sweet potato fries dipped in spicy ketchup are amazing. I love sweet potatoes so much that I couldn’t resist sharing 25 Fantastic Sweet Potato Recipes with you today – just in time for the holidays.

Sweet Potato Recipes

My Thanksgiving menu always has sweet potatoes in some form, usually a southern sweet potato casserole. In case you haven’t printed my FREE Thanksgiving Day Planner Packet, you can do it here: thanksgiving-planner

Last Thanksgiving, I created  Sweet Potato Pancakes for Aunt Jamima. They loved them so much that they purchased the recipe. Blush. Blush.

You'll never guess what the secret ingredient is in my sweet potato pancakes.

Sweet Potato Dumplings are delicious and so easy to make and who can resist a sweet potato pie with pecan topping?


Wait . . . there’s more . . . even Paleo Pancakes! Enjoy!

I would love the sweet potato pancakes. It’s a unique way of preparing your pancakes and could go well with different flavors.

What a great collection of recipes! We love sweet potato fries, and I would love to make those pancakes. These are perfect for fall. I don’t use sweet potatoes as much as I should!

Wow, I love sweet potatoes anything myself! One of our little girls love them just as much!! How awesome that Aunt Jamima purchased your recipe? Congrats on that, by the way!! And this is an great roundup!! When we were in SC, there was a little old restaurant down the streets that had the most amazing sweet potato recipe and BBQ. Forgot what they were called. My point is, I totally agree that there is just something amazing about Southern sweet potato recipes!!
