Sweet Potato Dippers from WeeliciousPin

My kids love dipping their food. Whether it’s Oven Baked Fries, Crispy Fish Fingers, or BBQ Chicken in the Crock Pot, if there’s a sauce on the side to dip into they are engaged eaters. That’s why these Sweet Potato Dippers make the most irresistible, nutritious snack or side dish for both kids and adults.

My original idea for this recipe was to make stuffed sweet potato skins, but as soon as I cut them in half, instead of scooping out the flesh to make potato skins I kept them intact, added a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt and thought how tasty they would be served on their own with a simple, thick dip made from Greek yogurt, cinnamon and a touch of honey to counter the bright flavor of the potato. The dip also offers a welcome protein boost and is irresistibly tasty.

  1. Will your kids eat the peel? I just picked up some new mini sweet potatoes that have a thinner peel they say can be eaten, but my husband won’t try it, so I doubt my 2-year old will either!

  2. Tried these out last night for Super Bowl and they were a smashing success. Everyone especially loved the dip! Thanks!! xo

  3. These are so yummy! Made these with your salmai bagel bites for a easy dinner and my 2 year old loved it and so did mommy!!

  4. Thanks for the great idea! I was making sweet potatoes for my kids and now they can have a fun dipping sauce to go with them! 🙂
