I love this recipe! Just tried it for the first time and my boyfriend absolutely loved it! I used 1/2 cup of butter and the only thing I added to this recipe for a little extra flavor was a pinch of nutmeg. Love love love it! Thanks Paula -Ivanna item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! Added a little less butter and a little pinch of nutmeg. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this! My husband loved it, too, and he is not fond of sweet potatoes. It is simple to prepare and has the right amount of sweetness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious. Just like baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter your order at a restaurant but much better. Great dish for entertaining. Plus sweet potatoes are so much more nutritious than regular potatoes. This is one of my favorite side dishes to make for guests and for personal use at home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My whole family loved it. Smooth and creamy with delicious flavor. It did take longer than 20 min but I am not the quickest chopper/peeler. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Too sweet for our taste. Loved the pork chops but maybe with less syrup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good and easy- I also added a bit more honey and salt, as well as a dash of cayenne pepper and a squirt of lime juice. This is a good base to do what you want with the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
