This little sweetheart of a vegetable ( sweet potato) needs no introduction. This starchy root vegetable can stand its ground against the pumpkin on Thanksgiving day or any other day for that matter, at least for me and especially if you prepare it my way. It is crunchy on the outside but once you take a bite, that savory and sweet flesh says "Hello" you have reached the love! These are baked in the oven and the bisque is a great accompaniment to this croquette. The bisque too is all sweet potato with just a little bit of cream to impart a smooth velvety texture.I have had guests try this and comment that they do not particularly like root vegetables but will eat this one any day as long as I prepare it!
This sweet potato has a light yellow flesh and I am not talking about the "bright orange" one called the yam.
