Because Thanksgiving!

We can all agree on Thanksgiving.

Your religion — or lack thereof — doesn’t matter. Politics? Card carrying member of the John Birch Society or national health care lovin’ socialist, who cares? Yankees fan, Red Socks fan — you’re both insufferable, but on Thanksgiving we can all sit down at the same table.

I’ve been sharing this recipe since 2006, so it’s become a tradition of sorts, to the point of sounding like Sam I Am, except evangelizing for sweet potatoes rather than green eggs and ham.

You do not like them. SO you say. Try them! Try them! And you may. Try them and you may I say.

One important note: never, never, never use canned sweet potatoes. If you do, that might be the one thing that could come between us on this most American of holidays.

    Hah! I actually made this and brought it in for our newsroom potluck way back when, complete with a little Albany Eye logo I printed from your site. It was a huge hit.

  2. Wow, that’s great, RJ! I actually heard about this from one of the participants in your working on the holiday feast. It’s quite an honor that my humble dish was featured at your celebration.
