WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.
If you’re looking for a way to mix up your weekend brunch, try this recipe for Sweet Potato Biscuits. The biscuits are prepared in the same way as other homemade biscuits, but Lisa adds a cup of mashed sweet potatoes to the bowl. The sweet potatoes add a touch of sweetness and extra moisture to the biscuits. You shouldn’t have a problem finding locally grown potatoes for this recipe because North Carolina is the top producer of sweet potatoes in the nation.
Lisa recommends serving the biscuits with a thin slice of country ham. You also can cut the dough into smaller biscuits and serve them as an appetizer at your next party.
