  1. I genuinely don’t remember when I last ate Irish potatoes aka spuds. Can one replace them with sweet potatoes Esme? IN fact I just might try that with Sweet potas. Thanks for sharing at the #SSPS

    • Hi Julie. I have not prepared this recipe but looking at it I am sure that you can use sweet potatoes in stead of spuds. When you make it, please let us know how it turned out. Enjoy.
