    I like sweet potatoes but don't like sweet potato fries. I think they are a soggy, oveerly-oiled disaster

    Truth. I love sweet potatoes, but my fries NEED to be crispy, and I've never had sweet potato fries that got there for me.

    For me, the best way to eat a sweet potato is roasted until weeping, and then just eaten plain, skin and all.

    Sweet potatoes, grilled or over a camp fire. Game changer

    Finally! An incentive for this city dweller to go camping! With my nephew and plenty of sweet potatoes.

    Overcooked potato and some people undercook meat!! My unpopular opinion is about that concept of beef rare or medium-rare. Absolutely no way for me.

    Haha! I'll let you slide on the dessert thing...I do like sweet potato pie and sweet potato cookies.

    I'm not sure if this is unpopular or not....

    Marshmallows do not belong in savory dishes.

    @pancakerunner. (How on earth do you make @ usernames in blue/hyperlink???). To grill the sweet potatoes, do you wrap them in foil tightly and for the whole time? How long would you guess for a typical/medium sized potato? Our grill is also a smoker, so I would guess at some point to unwrap them? Thanks, I am a newbie at grilling.

    Oh, wow! I did it (the blue). Huh.

    Wrap in tinfoil! Look up campfire sweet potatoes. A lot of recipes out there. Would work on the grill too I suppose 😍

    Yes!! There are cakes, sweet potato cookies, biscuits from sweet potato. I would take a sweet potato with melted ( vegan) butter, whipped cream or marshmallow fluff, maple syrup, cinnamon- mmm

    I love overcooked sweet potato to where its chewy. Slightly burnt popcorn in clumps- yum

    Christmas fruitcake- YUM! I don't eat it but love it. Now if I found a plant based gluten free fruitcake...
  • PAPYRUS3PAPYRUS3 Member Posts: 8,384 Member Member Posts: 8,384 Member
    yes...I'm feeling the yumminess vibe towards a 'good' Christmas fruitcake....I'm particular though - lots of dates/figs/prunes and various nuts and cherries - no orange or raisins/pineapple though lol!

    I like fruitcake full of garish candied fruit and a good dose of booze.
