I didn’t always like sweet potatoes. It wasn’t until I went Keto a couple years ago that I started experimenting a little with them. You see, I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I don’t think a meal is complete without a meat, a starch, and a vegetable- bonus points for bread too.

A little tip: I seriously can’t get enough of this recipe! It’s a little too spicy for my kid’s little taste buds, so if you want it to be more family-friendly, I suggest cutting back some of the cayenne/pepper. Don’t omit it completely, but maybe half it!

  1. It was easy to make and tasted delicious. Thank you! We will be making it again!

  2. Oh my!!! I made this last week with a few of tweaks. First, I sautéed a couple strips of diced bacon until crispy. I added mild Italian sausage (didn’t have any spicier sausage in my freezer) then the onion. Secondly, I didn’t add any of the sugar or honey as my husband is diabetic but used a bit more of the spices and a touch of nutmeg. Seriously yummy and super easy, this recipe is a keeper!

  3. I was interested in trying this, but when I saw it has 3/4 c sugar in it, I think I will pass! That’s a lot of sugar for a main dish meal that would probably taste fine without it, especially when I never add sugar to my sweet potatoes.

    1. Sandy, the sugar is a preference. You can most definitely make this recipe without it, but I do suggest the honey. A little extra sweetness to offset the spice of the cayenne will do wonders!
