sweet pot pie

Work with what you got! When you don't have Yukon gold, reach for the orangey sweet things instead. The dish turns out sweeter than your traditional Sheppard's pie and the texture of mashed sweet potatoes is much softer than your regular starchy white kind, so play things up with Delicious spices and herbs. enjoy
1. saute onions, garlic, ginger, and chillies
2. add lean ground beef and herbs. brown.
3. boil sweet potatoes, mash with fresh ginger and butter
4. layer in baking dish
5. top with panko bread crumbs for added texture/crunch
