Expert Tips

  • "What a great, easy side dish to serve with pork. I love Wallla Walla onions; I think of them as being so good for me.” Lori S.
  • Despite their extra sweetness, sweet potatoes have only a few more calories per ounce than white potatoes, but they have lots more vitamin A. Paired with the onion and seasonings in this recipe, they make a great side dish.
