Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Sweet potatoes with darker-colored skins are generally more moist and flavorful than the lighter ones. Two medium sweet potatoes or half of a small butternut squash will give you 2 cups of cubes.
  • tip 2
    This pot pie is almost complete all by itself, but a salad of melon slices and orange segments drizzled with honey adds a finishing touch. For extra flavor, stir a small amount of cinnamon into the honey.
