Sweet and Crunchy Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes for breakfast you may ask?  There isn't any reason not to eat them, right?  We eat them baked, sliced and roasted and boiled.  Whole, sliced or mashed we love them. They are healthy and taste great just as they are.  When topped with homemade granola and homemade maple syrup, they are wonderful! .  Eat them for breakfast, a side or even dessert.  These are perfect sliced, mashed or whole.  Cut down the middle lengthwise of whole sweet potatoes,  push the two sides together, top with granola and drizzle with syrup and/or melted butter/margarine.  Boil, drain , mash and top.  Any way you make them, top with granola and maple syrup and you have a new fav!
