Sweet meets savory with this dish! Nutmeg, ground ginger, and cinnamon provide an earthy fall taste and naturally sweet potatoes up the yum factor. This will definitely be a fan favorite at your table!



  1. I made this yesterday, doubled the recipe as my yams and sweet potatoes were on the smaller side. It was delicious and a big hit! No one would have guessed it was healthy – my boyfriend said, “your food was kick ass!” Thank you Tone it Up for a healthy, delicious recipe!!

  2. YESSS!! I love sweet potatoes they are my fav especially for Thanksgiving :)
    SO glad you girls loved the recipe, I will be trying the recipe for the first time this year! Any thoughts (to save time) instead of using whole sweet potatoes use Trader Joes already mashed sweet potatoes? I had them last year but did not do anything fancy and it came out delish! any thoughts, or recommendations?
