I'm always looking for new potato recipes and I try to change it up a little bit each time for variety. Gab isn't really fond of sweet potatoes though the rest of us love them. I've tried SEVERAL ways to get her to eat them, and she'll try them, but she's not crazy about them. At least she's now trying new things, that's all I can ask for!
I really enjoyed these potatoes and since the #1 searched for word here on the blog is "leeks", I wanted to use them in this recipe too. I love the subtle oniony flavor that leeks bring to a dish and sweet potatoes and sage just go hand in hand in my opinion. These were delicious and as you can see, very easy to prepare. Just be sure to wash the leeks well so as to remove all of the grit that is commonly found between the stalks.
