Sweet potatoes have become my new best friend. I have always stayed away from them due to this one experience where I absolutely hated it. I had always been a huge potato fan. But I mean, regular potatoes. However, after a long time of eating those, I wanted to branch out and try something new. So one day, I was at Outback and ordered a baked potato. The waiter came back to my table a few minutes later to inform me that they were out of baked potatoes, but they could give me a sweet potato instead. I figured I would give it a try.
What he brought was a burnt sweet potato covered in butter and brown sugar. Like, it was swimming in butter. Now imagine taking a bite of something burnt dunked in brown sugar. It is definitely not all that appetizing. Well, I thought all baked sweet potatoes were like that, so I never ordered it again… that is until I found out how to make them myself. I figured I would give them a try and absolutely loved them. It is from that great experience that I experimented more and then eventually came up with this sweet potato chowder!
