12 Sweet Potato Recipes for Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we are all looking for some side dishes and leftover ideas.  Though I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without at least a dish or two of them.  So, I am compiling this list of sweet potato recipes in the hopes that one day I can make myself like them. :-)  From main dishes to side dishes and from sweet to savory, these sweet potato recipes should have a little something for everyone!

Sweet Potato Recipes for Thanksgiving

12 Sweet Potato Recipes:

  1. Frugal Freebies & Deals shares her Sweet Potato secret weapon! Can you guess why it is called her secret weapon?
  2. Mama Likes to Cook makes things super pretty with some Purple Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  3. Sweet and Savory done right – Roasted Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  4. A Little Salty and a little sweet make these pork chops a perfect way to use up extra sweet potatoes – and even cranberries!  Seriously, the perfect Thanksgiving food!
  5. Interesting, I never really think about putting potatoes in my slow cooker, but can I just say “duh!”?  LOL! Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Mash
  6. This Sweet Potato Bread from 21st Century Housewife actually looks really good – says the person who is not a Sweet Potato fan!
  7. Now, the Citrus Spiced Sweet Potatoes from How to Have it All sound like a VERY unique combination of flavors!
  8. Don’t eat plain old fries, Sweet Potato Wedges take boring potatoes and make them into a scrumptious yet not super fattening fun side dish!
  9. No Thanksgiving Dinner is complete without at least one form of Sweet Potato Casserole!
  10. You can really mix things up by making this yummy Sweet Potato and Chocolate Chip Bars recipe!
  11. So, not really a Thanksgiving dish, but these Sweet Potato Toddler Crackers are a smart idea for keeping on hand during the Holidays.  Kids get cranky on long car rides to visit relatives and after a long day of non-stop visiting.  Quiet them down with food – works every time for us. :-)
  12. The perfect way to wrap up this post… Decadent Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes  <– this is what graces the Thanksgiving tables down here!

  2. This is a great list of recipes Kelli. I don’t particularly like candied sweet potatoes, but I like sweet potatoes on their own. My favorite way to eat them is roasted with a little cumin and rosemary. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Let’s Get Real link party. I’ve pinned to the group board.
