Thanksgiving is coming soon and I love ideas that make it easy for our little chefs to be part of making our holiday meal. Sweet potatoes is often found on the family table during the holiday but you may never have enjoyed it like this before.
A Sweet Potato Bar is a fun twist and alternative to a baked potato bar. Whether its for a family dinner or a holiday gathering, this DIY buffet is a great way to get your kids experimenting with different flavors combinations. The sweet potato bar was actually my son’s idea after we had so much fun making the Sweet Potato and Apple Soup.
Next wrap each potato in aluminum foil and bake in oven 400 degrees for 60-70 minutes. You can even decide to cook the sweet potato in a slow cooker which take a bit longer but just as easy.
The sweet potato bar was so simple that I am surprised that we haven’t tried it sooner. Simply start with a baked sweet potato then have fun with different toppings. The bar set up allows them to experiment with different flavors and the opportunity to decide how they want their food to taste. I love that everyone can serve themselves…even my little 2-year old could get in on the fun.
I could go on but I think you get the point…
Fall Harvest = Apples + Pecans + Brown Butter Sage
Sweet Potato Casserole = Brown Sugar + Honey + Marshmallows
Sweet Potato Pie = Pumpkin Spice + Cinnamon + Crushed graham crackers + Pecans
Taco Night = Ground Turkey + Salsa + Avocado + Cheese
