Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen has the perfect fall side dish for us!  She writes:

I love sweet potatoes, but my husband does not…fancy that. I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to make them edible for him, but he has never shown an interest….until now! I am so excited to share the winning sweet potato recipe my husband finally enjoyed!

I paired these up with a pork tenderloin and green beans for a delicious homemade meal.

Peel 4 large sweet potatoes
Shred with a cheese grater
Remember when I told you my husband didn’t particularly like sweet potatoes? Well at this point of me making them was when he came in from work. As I cooked and he told me about his day, he preceded to take a huge handful of the shredded potatoes and popped them into his mouth! It dawned on me that he thought they were cheese!!!! HA! (yes, he was surprised, lol)
In a large skillet heat 1/4 cup butter on med-high
