Fried Sweet Potato Tidbits

Michelle Snider


I looked and looked for a recipe for fried sweet potatoes. I was not happy with any of the recipes I found so I came up with my own. These were a hit with ALL my kids and we as parents know how hard that is, I have 4 kids and next time i will be doubling my recipe.
