Love sweet potatoes? Here are must-try sweet potato recipes that are quick, healthy and easy!

If you were to ask me for my most popular blog recipe ingredient, I would say sweet potato without hesitation. In fact, I use it so frequently I could have made this roundup entirely of recipes just from my blog. Don't worry, I didn't! But if you're interested, you can find all my sweet potato recipes here.
I think I just love them because they're so darn versatile. You can literally use them in recipes for any time of day, from breakfast to dessert! And if I put on my RD hat for a minute, they're also full of important nutrients like Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
My husband recently went on a business trip and told me that one of the men traveling with him had never tried a sweet potato and he was in his early 40's. I consider this a bit of a tragedy. I'm pretty sure sweet potatoes were the second food my son ever tried at just 6 months of age!
Anyways, in an effort to make sure no one goes through half their life without trying sweet potatoes, I've rounded up 20 must-try recipes for you to check out. Pick one to get you started....but I'd highly encourage you to work your way through the whole list!
