PB&J Sweet Potatoes (#StrangeButGood)

I am convinced that peanut butter and sweet potatoes were meant for each other! My hubby on the other hand… not so much. When I announced this, he gave me a look that I often get from others in reference to the foods I eat (#strangebutgood).

Even if you don’t agree with me on the PB and sweet potatoes, you have to admit that peanut butter and jelly are soul mates.

This recipe brings the two ideas together!

(I promised to post this recipe a while back. I am finally getting around to it!)
