For whatever reasons, sweet potatoes are not given the same priority as white potatoes. Probably all fast food restaurants serve French fries or mashed potatoes, however, the sweet potato is nowhere to be found. Therefore, they continue to neglect this amazing veggie. The nutritional value is far beyond the white potato and the flavor is delicate enough to cook them in a variety of ways; you can French fry them, bake them whole, oven fry them, the sky is the limit!
