Sweet Potato Homefries

I love sweet potatoes, but my husband does not…fancy that. I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to make them edible for him, but he has never shown an interest….until now! I am so excited to share the winning sweet potato recipe my husband finally enjoyed!

 I paired these up with a pork tenderloin and green beans for a delicious homemade meal. 

Peel 4 large sweet potatoes 
Shred with a cheese grater 
Remember when I told you my husband didn’t particularly like sweet potatoes? Well at this point of me making them was when he came in from work. As I cooked and he told me about his day, he preceded to take a huge handful of the shredded potatoes and popped them into his mouth! It dawned on me that he thought they were cheese!!!! HA! (yes, he was surprised, lol) 
In a large skillet heat 1/4 cup butter on med-high
Fry potatoes until lightly browned and soft- then sprinkle with brown sugar 
A great accompaniment to a pork tenderloin…enjoy!

    Okay, funny. I am working on a post about this lasagna I made that had cottage cheese. My husband hates cottage cheese. So I didn't tell him it was in there 🙂

    Mmmm looks delicious! Last night I made the chicken enchiladas you have on your site and they were incredible! I was so proud of them. 😉 Thanks for another great recipe.

    Stephanie-that is too funny! Did he notice? GoodGirl-yea! So glad you liked the enchiladas! You should be proud! Yessel, I used a marinated pork tenderloin that I purchased at my local grocery store! All I had to do was roast it in the oven…as a caution: these kinds of tenderloin take almost twice the time to fully cook than as described in the directions.but, they make an easy and delicious dinner! Thanks everyone!!!
