Spicy Candied Sweet Potatoes – Tasty Tuesdays Link Up

I prefer to keep my marshmallows for s’mores and make these amazing Spicy Candied Sweet Potatoes instead.

Spicy Candied Sweet Potato recipe with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Great with turkey or ham for the holidays.

Since this will probably be my last post before Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to thank some special people.

First up is Tammy of Creative K. Kids for trusting me to co-host the Tasty Tuesdays Link Up the past two months. This will be my last one (for awhile?). It has been a blast, but now it is time to give someone else a turn. I will still be linking up weekly and I hope you will too, or if you are not a food blogger I hope you will check out the recipes.

Secondly is a pair of people. I have to give the nod to my Goddaddy Barry for having the sense to bring Sandy into our family. But the thank you really is for Sandy herself for being one of the most loving, inspiring and gracious human beings to ever walk the Earth. And she makes these amazing sweet potatoes every year for Thanksgiving. Now I have the recipe so I can make them whenever I want. And you can too.

So easy and so delicious. I made a meal of these with a side of leftover turkey the other day.

And before I give you the recipe, I need to give you the traditional That Recipe holiday speech:


I hope you all have a great week, whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving or not.
