One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all the parties! They are basically an excuse to eat yummy food. 🙂 And my favorite party food is appetizers. I love appetizers! Hot dips, breads, cheeses, crackers-bite sized treats of any kind are the best. I was inspired to make these Sweet Potato Bites when I saw the newest flavor of Triscuit crackers: Nutmeg & Cinnamon.
This is such a quick and simple recipe, and the subtly sweet flavor of the Nutmeg & Cinnamon Triscuit crackers is perfect for it. To make it even easier, I used canned sweet potatoes, but you could certainly roast your own fresh sweet potatoes and mash them up. Because of the already sweet flavors in the crackers as well as the marshmallows, I didn’t add any sugar to the sweet potatoes. Simply mash them up with a little butter, salt and pepper and you’re ready to go!
You can also press a pecan half into the top of the broiled marshmallows while they are still soft. My kids aren’t really fans of nuts, so I decided to skip them, but I do like the combination of sweet potatoes and pecans, so give it a try!
I picked up everything I needed at Walmart . The Smoked Gouda flavor almost had me changing my recipe at the last second, but Nutmeg & Cinnamon was just calling to me. Maybe I’ll try another flavor with my popular Warm Swiss Sweet Onion Dip! Scroll all the way down to enter to win one of 6 $50 gift cards to Walmart!
