EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Make this extra fast and easy. Just omit step 1, and use 1 can (23 ounces) sweet potatoes or yams, drained and cut into 1/2-inch slices, in place of the fresh sweet potatoes.

Make Pineapple Sweet Potatoes by omitting the 3 tablespoons water and adding an 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple in syrup, undrained.
