Sweet Potato Biscuits and Louisiana Crawfish Recipes – Yay!!

My Sweet Potato Biscuits Bisquick recipe with yams represents my Cajun healthy easy recipes. However, my family LOVES crawfish recipes and we look forward to crawfish season.  I know to keep Louisiana crawfish tails frozen year round beccause Ilike to make cawfish recipes when its not crawfish season. In the beginning of crawfish season the weather is till cold so I  usually prepare my 5 minute (that’s about how long it takes to make it) Crawfish Corn Soup recipe from Gulf Coast Favorites. You’ll find lots of crawfish recipes for eating healthy on my healthy food blog and on the Louisiana crawfish website.. What goes better with this one-pot meal than my sweet potato biscuits and we call them in Louisiana, Yam Biscuits!  Also, I love to serve my soups in glass mugs.

I am a bread girl, and I just had to pair these recipes with one of my all-time favorite sides – Yam Biscuits! Healthy comfort food at it’s finest, these delicious biscuits have a touch of yam’s natural sweetness that will melt in your mouth. Best of all, they use Bisquick baking mix for extra ease and yumminess! Serve them as a side to a meat tray, with your meal and especially at breakfast – so many ways to gobble up this standout snack! Watch me make these dishes and more.

Terrific Tidbit: For a savory biscuit, delete the cinnamon and add 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and 1 teaspoon seasoning salt or seasoning mix.

My Choice:  I love to serve soups in glass coffee mugs.   There are many different choices, but I like these glass mugs with the footed bottom. If using mugs, they make soup a great snack or go well with a sandwich or salad….or Yam Biscuits!
