Cook the Book: Sweet Potato Roll Cake

This Sweet Potato Roll Cake adapted from Lyniece North Talmadge's The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook should be dubbed the Bûche de Thanksgiving—the spiced sweet potato cake is rolled up with a cream cheese-pineapple filling. More

Cook the Book: Sweet Potato Pralines

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

I suppose I was playing it safe when I chose these Sweet Potato Pralines since the recipe only includes a scant two tablespoons of sweet potato. The finished candy didn't end up tasting all that sweet potato-y at all, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Regardless of the lack sweet potato flavor, the pralines were pretty spot on—sugary sweet with a great crunch and tons of nutty pecan nibs. More

Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

This Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie from Lyniece North Talmadge's The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook takes the classic mashed potato topping and swaps it out for mashed sweets. The super savory filling is a mix of ground beef or turkey sautéed with tomatoes, thyme, and an umami blast of Worcestershire and shiitake mushrooms, rich and meaty enough to stand up to the sweetness of the sweet potato topping.

This gratin from Lyniece North Talmadge's The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook takes chunks of sweet potatoes and bakes them with a mix of cream, thyme, parmesan, and gruyère until molten, bubbly, and brown. It's just as rich and creamy as you'd imagine with a list of ingredients like that, with the cream and cheese melding with the potatoes, creating a custard-like filling, and a top and bottom crust with plenty of browned, scrape-able bits—the tell-tale sign of a great gratin.

This Sweet Potato Sausage Stuffing from Lyniece North Talmadge's The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook is pretty incredible in that it combines three Thanksgiving sides into one—cornbread stuffing plus sausage stuffing plus mashed sweet potatoes. The combo is a savory-sweet-meaty-bready Thanksgiving explosion, ideal for stuffing the bird or as a dressing, cooked on its own. More

Part of the fun of Lyniece North Talmadge's The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook is the possibility of making meals that incorporate sweet potatoes into every course. That was precisely my plan for recipe-testing from the book. I began my day with these Sweet Potato Cloverleaf Rolls, lightly sweet, yeasted rolls with sweet potato purée mixed into the dough. More
