Sweet potatoes are ubiquitous around the holidays, but there are good reasons—beyond the fact that they're delicious—to make them a year-round staple. Because they contain tons of vitamins A and C and have anti-inflammatory properties, sweet potatoes can add a nutrient boost to all kinds of foods, from crispy hot latkes to cool panna cotta. Here, 15 smart ways to use them.
1. Hash. Sauté sweet potatoes with scallions and smoked paprika for a breakfast hash, then bake some eggs right on top.
2. Biscuits. Mash some sweets to add to cayenne-spiked biscuits.
