Since the recipes have seemed to go over really well, I received permission from my husband’s grandma to release her ultimate sweet potato recipe.  It’s super simple and cheap, but I warn you, they are unhealthy and addictive…dangerous combination.  🙂

Betty’s Sweet Potatoes

  • 5 medium or 4 large sweet potatoes ($2.93 at Kroger)
  • 1 stick of butter ($0.40 at Kroger)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar (about $0.30 at Kroger)
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice (I’m rounding up to $0.20)
  • Total cost was less than $4 or about $0.50 to $1 per serving depending on your personal serving size.

1.  Place sweet potatoes in a large pot of water and boil for 30 minutes until mostly done.

2.  Peel potatoes, slice them into sections, and place them in an 8″ x 8″ pan.

3.  Cube the stick of butter and place evenly on top of the potatoes, sprinkle on the cup of brown sugar, and pour the 1/2 cup of orange juice on top.

4.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the liquid looks thick and bubbly.  Let them cool off a bit and enjoy!

These are soooo good!

Do you have any other frugal and tasty recipe ideas that even I could cook?  🙂
