Pretzel Topped Sweet Potatoes

This week I've been testing out some potential new side dishes for our holiday celebrations. First up were these Pretzel Topped Sweet Potatoes from Taste of Home.  I did adapt the recipe slightly based on what I had on hand, which was mini pretzel twists and dried cranberries.


I also chose to bake the mixture in ramekins to make individual servings rather than family style, I like how people can just grab one (or two) and not have to dish out of a bigger vessel. Plus it insures an equal amount of the delicious topping for everyone. Thank you so much to Sue M. for sharing her amazing recipe!

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
