Ya'll...I'm about to let my "Paula Deen" show... This recipe is NOT healthy. Anything that has soda as one of the main ingredients clearly isn't for anyone on the road to a better them.
But, I make this recipe about twice a year; once around Thanksgiving and usually at some point for a get together/family dinner in the Fall. So, no shaming me and my butter and soda here...
Sweet Potato Dumplings
1 1/4 cup of sugar (white sugar)
1 1/4 stick of butter (I use the unsalted kind)
1 TSP of cinnamon
Crescent rolls from the refrigerated section
Frozen sweet potato patties (or you can cut/slice fresh sweet potatoes in circles, however it will take much longer to cook)
1 Cup of Mt. Dew (yes, you read that correctly.. MT. DEW folks)
You will need a 9x13 pan for this dish.
You are going to wrap each sweet potato patty with one crescent roll, starting from the widest end and rolling up.
Place them in the pan.
On the stovestop, combine sugar, butter, and cinnamon on medium and melt completely. I usually keep it on medium and stir constantly so it doesn't burn.
Pour mixture over the sweet potato crescent rolls.
Pour the cup of Mt. Dew over the dumplings.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until they are gold and bubbly :)
Then check your blood sugar...just kidding :)
Lots of love!
