Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie
Roasted Sweet Potato and Feta Salad
This recipe is so short and simple that even the worst cook in the world could throw it together and impress the harshest of critics. The combination of sweet, warm potato with the feta was, as always with such a duo, absolutely delicious.Megan S.
Sweet Potato Soufflé
Where have you been all my life, sweet potato soufflé!? Somehow, I’ve missed this recipe for the PAST 10 YEARS. Well, no more.
This was a hit at the Thanksgiving table this year. The potatoes themselves aren’t particularly sweet, but the topping…it’s like eating a pecan pie. And together–potatoes and topping–are a perfect balance. We’ll be making this every year from now on.Tuck

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes
These bourbon sweet potatoes were the BEST sweet potatoes I’ve ever eaten! And the party crowd thought so, too. As we started to leave, I went to collect my dish and saw there were about three slices left. I reached to pack it up, and the hostess said, “oh please don’t take the potatoes!” Yeah, they were THAT good!Gayle

Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Recipes FAQs
Although the terms are often used interchangeably, yams and sweet potatoes are different. Yams are starchy, with a brown exterior and light-colored interior. They’re commonly grown in Latin America and Africa.
Sweet potatoes, which are what you’ll usually find at the supermarket, have a reddish-colored skin and interior and are creamier than yams.
If you ended up roasting and mashing too many sweet potatoes for your casserole, you can do plenty of things with the extra. Fry them up as sweet potato patties, bake them into sweet potato cornbread or biscuits, or mix them with yogurt and tahini to create sweet potato hummus.
