State of Confusion Stuffed Sweet Potato Recipe

A sweet potato is more than a bright orange vessel for butter and brown sugar.

This versatile veggie can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes. Not to mention – it’s a nutrient powerhouse. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of fiber, and they are loaded with beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. Diced, mashed, or baked, this super spud deserves a spot on your plate. Here is a healthy sweet potato recipe from Chattanooga restaurant State of Confusion.
