I remember the first time I had sweet potatoes, they were mashed and served on the side of a piece of chicken. I loved the combo and have been enjoying different variations of sweet potatoes ever since. Experimenting with cooking techniques and coming to love the sweet potato was not a hard task. The recipe I provide here is very easy and one I absolutely adore. The addition of smoked paprika blends nicely with the creamy sweet taste of the orange hued potato that is always celebrated at my holiday table as an ideal side dish. Enjoy.
