Great for Easter breakfast Buffet!
Alongside eggs and bacon or as a side dish for roast turkey or pork.
Using the orange-fleshed sweet-potato will give a thinner and creamier texture- the meaty yellow ones(sweet potatoes by USA standards)which are meaty and yellow fleshed will make it thicker and denser.
Either will taste great!
