A good recipe over all. Maybe it's my oven, but 40 minutes is ENTIRELY too long. They burn every time. It seems like 25 minutes is about right.

Definitely needs salt. Bland flavor overall. 40 minutes is plenty of cook time. I took mine out 5 minutes early and they were very brown, almost too done.

Really good. You don't need to go with the bother of peeling the potatoes tho, just wash them like you would regular potatoes!

Easy, quick side dish. I didn't have almonds so used pine nuts instead. Threw them on top of sweet potatoes in last 3 minutes of roasting in oven.

I had heard that Sweet Potatoes are so much better for you than plain potatoes. I wanted to give them a try and used this recipe. I made it almost as directed (maybe a little more garlic and chopped raw almonds). These were a big hit! Light and delicious! Will make again and again!

Delicious - the addition of thyme and garlic makes these potatoes a nice alternative to more sugary sweet potato recipes. My husband loved this, and he's normally not a fan of sweet potatoes. Will definitely make again.

my grandson helped me make this. wonderful favor. did exact recipe. after tasting, we drizzled some butter over our servings and added a pinch more salt for our personal touch. will make again!

good, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half, as I used three large sweet potatoes and it was hard to mix up.
