It might just be my family, but we eat sweet potatoes (or camotes) for breakfast. The first time I saw sweet potatoes at a Thanksgiving dinner, I thought it was the craziest thing I’d ever seen. And with marshmallows?!! It was a totally bizarre experience. For me and my Mexican family, camotes are sweet with tons and tons of honey and served with coffee.
If you don’t go down the Hispanic aisle, you’re totally missing out! There are some GREAT finds! When I saw the honey in the Hispanic aisle at Walmart, I thought of my fiancé, Christopher. He had heard of my breakfast sweet potatoes, but I had never made them for him before. So, I grabbed a jar of Don Victor’s honeycomb honey to make my family’s dish for my own special honey. 😉
- 2 large sweet potatotes
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1 teaspoon whole allspice
- 1 whole cinnamon
- ½ cup honey
- 4 cups water
- ¼ cup milk
- Chop sweet potatoes into bite-sized one-inch pieces. Leave the skin on. Put into a large stockpot and add the water, cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and ½ cup honey. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. Serve into a bowl with some of the liquid from the pot. Top with more honey and add milk, if desired.
Right now with all the Holiday recipes coming out, I’ve been itching to make my family’s “Camotes con Miel,” or Honey Sweet Potatoes. These are 2 large camotes chopped into bite-sized pieces about one inch thick. If you cut them into bigger pieces, that’s cool too. Once they are cooked, you can easily cut them with a spoon.
Put them into a large stock pot with enough water to cover them. Add a whole cinnamon stick, whole cloves, whole allspice, and honey, of course. Lots and lots of honey. When the Honey Sweet Potatoes are simmering, the entire house smells of the Holidays. Perfecto para el desayuno el día 25 de Navidad.
My German fiancé loved my Mexican dish! The texture of the honeycomb from Don Victor’s honey added some extra goodness. Sometimes we add a splash of milk, but it tastes great just as is.
Don Victor also makes a cinnamon honey. I didn’t use it this time for my Honey Sweet Potatoes recipe, but I gotta give that a try next time and omit the whole cinnamon. The caramel honey, now that I have to try with some vanilla ice cream. Yum! Yum! Their olive oil is in a pretty cool container with a cute pouring spout. To find more Don Victor products: CLICK HERE
