FALLBROOK – Sweet potatoes are a favorite side dish at Thanksgiving dinner tables. Packed with vitamins, nutrients, fiber and delectable flavor, sweet potatoes have earned their place on holiday dinner tables. While many holiday hosts bake, fry or mash their sweet potatoes, these beloved tubers can be prepared in other ways as well.

If cooks want to put a new twist on the Thanksgiving staple, whip up this recipe for Sweet Potato Quiche, courtesy of the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission. Submitted to the North Carolina State Fair Tailgate Recipe Contest by Kristen Frybort, this recipe marries sweet tubers with decadent cheese, rich cream and savory spices.

2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes

3/4 cup yellow onion, diced

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced

1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
