We’ve devised a way for you to have the food you love without having to experience the glutinous hangover guilt on Monday. Our goal is to put a better twist on traditional tailgate food without being too drastic or taking away the fun, so instead of loaded potato skins we’ll show you how to do it with sweet potatoes.
