When I first sliced open the sweet potatoes we bought for our side dish, I was completely shocked. When I purchased sweet potatoes from the grocery store, I thought that my produce would be a certain color. The minute I planned this recipe, I pictured a vibrant orange color, sprinkled with gorgeous, fresh thyme. However, when I cut into this vegetable, I was disappointed and pretty confused. While I was panicking in the kitchen and wondering what I bought, Dan answered my question with a little help from Google. After some reading, Dan enlightened me about all of the colors that sweet potatoes come in. Once I finally got over my vision for a bright sweet potato bake and realized that I was indeed cooking with sweet potatoes, I embraced this new direction for our side dish. The minute I took a bite of this rich, creamy and sweet bake, I was so impressed with all of the delicious flavors.
Thanksgiving is easily one of my favorite holidays and I love making flavorful, fall dishes leading up to the big day.
