Sweet Potato Oatmeal

A few weeks back, I saw a photo on pinterest for Sweet Potato Oatmeal. I didn't even open the link because it sounded far too weird to be enjoyable. But then, about a week ago, I had some leftover roasted sweet potatoes in the refrigerator that I was going to puree anyway for sweet potato pie. I took a spoonful out and added it to my breakfast, just to see how it was. Boy, was this an excellent bowl of oatmeal. It was sweet, super filling and tasted just like sweet potato pie. This was a winner for sure.
