Sweet Potatoes

My boys love sweet potatoes. I have been trying to come up with some lower protein treats for Dugan since there is something up with his liver. My boys have always gotten chicken mixed in with their kibble, so I was trying to come up with something else to mix with Dugan's food. Well, I baked a few sweet potatoes, peeled them, cut them into cubes and put them in the fridge. Well, they have been a huge hit with Dugan and Brady. Brady usually hates sweet potato treats, but real sweet potatoes he just loves. I give them to Dugan with his food and to Brady and Dugan as a treat.

karen did you just bake them without peeling them? I tried to make them in the dehydrator but it was a disaster.

Hey Karen, if you have a few left over, bring them to the playdate, I would love to see if I could find a treat that maddie will actually eat.

Karen that's great. I always wanted to name a Havanese "batata" or "sweet potatoe." Thought it would be cute.

My family loves baked sweet potatoes, baked in the skins, with a little butter and parmesan on top. Also sweet potato fries. Your boys have great taste!

I am going to try that! I always love natural treats made at home that don't have all the extra junk in them. Thanks for the tip!

I actually just put them in the microwave. When I took them out, I just took a knife and peeled the skins right off. I can't believe the boys (especially Brady who usually hates veggies) like them as much as they do. I was going to try the dehydrator too. I may wait on that now.

Kind of unrelated, but I just think it's the coolest name:

My bf does barn restoration and he's been up to the Hamptons to work on Estee Lauder's estate. Well, each of the buildings on her property has a name and one of them is "Sweet Potato"

Dusty and Indie love sweet potatoes also. I bake them like you do (in the microwave), cut them up and freeze them.
They won't eat sweet potato commercial treats.
Jackson would not touch sweet potatoes when he was here.
