Sweet potatoes not just for the holidays!
While I love a sweet, marshmallow topped sweet potato casserole, I also love sweet potatoes all year long!
Growing up, we only had sweet potatoes at the holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas. The rest of the year was regular potatoes. I hope you are not in that rut.
I'm here to fix it if you are, with this collection of 12 Sweet Potato Recipes that absolutely prove they are not just for the holidays!
Chicken recipes with sweet potatoes.
When looking at my favorite main dishes using sweet potatoes, it was no surprise that chicken was at the top. We eat a lot of chicken, it's our go to protein and finding ways to pair with it the pretty orange potatoes was a no brainer.
Up first we have Maple Roasted Chicken and Sweet Potatoes. This is such an easy one pan meal. I make it over and over again, all fall.
If you're trying to up your whole grains, you're going to love our Chicken and Sweet Potato Farro Salad. It's the perfect way to turn a rotisserie chicken into a healthy and delicious salad!
Chicken, Sweet Potatoes and Olive Tapenade is another easy sheet pan dinner! Everything is roasted together on one pan and then get a boost of flavor from a tangy olive tapenade.
If you only use your spiralizer to make zoodles, then you are in a for a treat with our Miso Chicken with Sweet Potato Noodles.
Pork recipes with sweet potatoes.
It's no surprise that tied with chicken are pork recipes for this round up. Pork lends itself to a sweet pairing and it goes beautifully with sweet potatoes.
Roasted Sausages with Vegetables is another easy sheet pan dinner (noticing a trend here?) Sausages, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash all roast together in one pan for the perfect weeknight dinner.
Turn a sweet potato into a meal with our Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Sausage and Leeks. This also makes great game day food!
I don't want to pick favorites, but this Pasta with Sweet Potatoes and Bacon has to be at the top of my list. Because...bacon. Really, everyone loves this!
Changing it up a bit, you definitely need to try our Pasta with Sweet Potatoes and Chorizo. Similar to the one with bacon, but kicked up a bit!
Hmm... I just realized I only have one beef recipe using sweet potatoes. Must remedy that!
In the meantime, this Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes takes beef stew to a whole new level!
Well, I only have one meatless recipe too!
I make some version of a frittata every week, it is my clean out the produce drawer dinner.
This Sweet Potato and Spinach Frittata has everything you need for a quick and easy dinner.
Side dish recipes.
I saved side dishes for last, because of course you can easily make a side dish from sweet potatoes.
What I didn't want to include is your classic holiday side dishes, the casseroles we've all grown up with and love to bits.
My easy go-to side is Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries. I serve them with everything!
Sweet Potato Farro Salad is my answer to a fall grain salad. It makes a great side with roast chicken and it's robust enough for a light lunch.
And that's a wrap! Which recipe are you going to try first?
