This recipe looks absolutely scrumptious! It comes from the community cookbook, Cook Book.

This recipe actually instructs you to make it into potato balls, and then fry in butter. However, I’ve turned it into a baked dish. I love any recipe where I can add pineapple – and a sweet potato bake is perfect for it. The original form is listed in the recipe notes below.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
