Ricotta Sweet Potato "eggs"

December 29, 2015


Author Notes: I created this recipe for one of my gourmet club meals, where we had to remake a disliked food. I do not enjoy eggs, ever since a highly memorable childhood experience. These potato-cheese eggs were a hit! An easy gluten-free appetizer. reahpeah
