Can I use sweet pots in a beef casserole as well as ordinary pots?

Am making AK beef casserole for 9mth DS and I have only got half the amount of normal potatoes. Have got some sweet potatoes in the cupboard, so could I use these along with the normal potatoes? I would I need to cook them for as long as the normal pots?

You can use them -- they don't normally need to be cooked for as long as regular potatoes, but if you are cooking them actually in the casserole it won't matter, they'll just be a bit more falling apart.

absolutely! think just cook them for as long, or perhaps an extra 5mins?

ooh, a split decision here - as long or not as long?

no they cook much quicker than normal pots but dont worry they will just sort of disintergrate making the sauce lovely and sweet and thick

Also they have got more vitamins in.

they do cook really really quickly so I would either cut them into bigger sized chunks or add them a bit later on.

Of course you can, there is nothing wrong with deviating from a recipe!

Sweet potatoes cook quicker than normal potatoes.
