Growing up I never really liked the idea of sweet potatoes.  The whole reason I like potatoes is because they are salty- or at least they are once you add salt, cheese, bacon and all other delicious things.   To this day, my parents still make sweet potatoes on a weekly basis.  And up until just recently, I had never really tried a sweet potato….I just knew I couldn’t possibly like it.

Well, the time finally came….I jumped off the deep end and made sweet potatoes in the Ninja Foodi.  Honestly,  it wasn’t my idea.  A girlfriend of mine was making sweet potatoes so I figured what the heck, I’ll give it a try.  OMG!  It was so good.  Ok, maybe it was because I poured leftover marshmallow sauce all over the top and added extra brown sugar and butter….but who cares!  At the end of the day, I tried sweet potatoes and LOVED them!
