Ode to Loaded Sweet Potatoes and How I Love Thee

Posted on November 15th, 2012 in Stories


Ode to loaded sweet potatoes,

And how I love thee,

Because you take a tasty veggie,

To the extreme.

Google images (and a really tasty recipe!)

I’ve always loved potatoes,

but sweet potatoes are the best,

For not only are they healthy

but they’re sweeter than the rest.


And the only thing better,

Than a loaded potato with bacon and cheese,

Is a sweet potato loaded and stuffed,

With everything I can dream.

Google images. 

Guacamole and salsa,

Cinnamon and nutmeg,

Chili powder and cumin,

Oh, the possibilities are endless!


Cheese and marinara sauce,

Meatballs and and enchilada sauce,

Eat them plain or dry,

And I’ll just sit down and cry.


Butter or oil,

Marshmallows or cream,

There’s no dressing I’ve ever found,

That doesn’t suit sweet potatoes perfectly.

Salty or sweet,

Healthy or naughty,

The only thing better than a loaded sweet potato,

is a loaded sweet potato pie.

Ode to loaded sweet potatoes,

And how I love thee,

For without you,

I’d never eat my veggies.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new Friday Five mañana!

    Oh I love sweet potatoes and can’t wait until next week. I think I’ll have mine with butter, cinnamon and a dash of sugar. Just like pie! Yum. You left me a question last week asking about Sriracha. It is a hot chili sauce originally made in Thailand. The flavor is wonderful and the heat is not bad. They even have their own cookbook! It is really easy to find – even at Wal-Mart. If you love any kind of spicy hot sauce – give this one a try. Hope you have a love Thanksgiving! Love your poem – it is all so true and creative!

    Oh how I love sweet potatoes you know I’ve done the fries but haven’t done anything fun like the other pictures. Currently my diet doesn’t allow sweet potatoes but when I can again I’m so making that first one and working my way down!

  7. Channon Says:

    I love sweet potatoes in just about every form, but I confess… I haven’t tried “loading” the baked variety with anything other than a bit of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar. I’m really curious about the guac photo…

  8. grace Says:

    loaded with brown sugar, marshmallows, and cinnamon–it’s like dessert but acceptable as a side, which is pretty much as good as it gets. :)

  9. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell Says:

    I had no idea they could be loaded in all those ways! Awesome!

  10. Marjie Says:

    I like loaded baked potatoes, but I love sweet potatoes too much to add anything to them!

  11. Cakelaw Says:

    Duckie, you are making me hungry! I love the look of all of these sweet potato dishes.

  15. Kimberly Says:

    Holy cow! I never would have thought to do those things with a sweet potato. I’ll have to try it. They look delish.

  16. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella Says:

    I love sweet potatoes but not with marshmallows I’m afraid! We tried it one night and nobody would eat it :(

  17. Kimberly Says:

    That. Is. Awesome.
    Is it wrong that I want a sweet potato in the morning?
    Well if it is, I don’t want to be right.

  18. amy @ fearless homemaker Says:

    Would you believe that it’s been at least 6 months since i’ve eaten a sweet potato? I need to change that ASAP – they are soo good!

  19. Charlotte Says:

    So cute :) And yes, I love me some sweet potatoes, too. I am drooling over all of these pictures. May have to reconsider my Thanksgiving menu to include sweet pot’s. Mmmm…
