Fall is here, which means baseball playoffs and football. Here is a Texas style, loaded sweet potato that is perfect for any viewing party or tailgate.
It’s baseball playoff time, and we are so excited that our favorite team made it to the postseason. We have been taking turns hosting the big game with our friends. When it was our turn to host, I thought back to our days in Texas—oh how I loved sweet potatoes smothered with pulled pork and coleslaw. I decided it was time to introduce our friends to this Lone Star favorite.

I set up the dinner next to the grill. This allowed people to pull their sweet potato off the grill before piling on their delicious toppings.
These are messy recipes, but they are so tasty that it’s worth it. I am a slob when I cook, so I go through a lot of paper towels. I recently switched to Viva® Vantage® Paper Towels, because they are strong and absorbent. I love how they come in choose-a-size. I can use one of these fiber-packed sheets for a small job, or I can use two or three for big messes, like barbecue. I can even get them wet to clean up sticky things like honey, and they won’t rip or tear.
I picked up my Viva® Vantage® at Walmart. They come in 6 or 12 big-roll packs. Right now, you can click here to get $1 off any ONE (1) Viva® Paper Towel or Viva® Vantage® Paper Towel 12-pack or larger. That’s great savings!
What sort of delicious messes do you make?
