"These sweet potatoes are prepared similar to roasted garlic mashed potatoes. The sweet potatoes ad an interesting creamy and sweet dynamic that is balanced out with sour cream, cream cheese and of course....roasted garlic...mmm"

butter (at room temperature)

My husband and I have both been put off by sweet potatoes our entire lives due to everyone always adding lots of extra sugar. I knew there had to be something out there that would make a savory sweet potato dish, and dag nabit, this is it! The dish is still sweet, but thankfully not overbearingly so.
We added some prepared creamy horseradish and some fresh grated parm to the top before popping it into the oven, but otherwise did everything to spec. Next time will omit the cream cheese and add a little chicken broth. We will be makeing this again!
Great idea, way too much garlic. I cut the recipe in half: two sweet potatoes and one head of garlic. I honestly could barely taste the potatoes through the overwhelming garlic. I'll try this one again but I'll use three or four sweet potatoes per head of garlic.
Smooth and rich. I was concerned about the garlic taste combined with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, but they go together well. The cayenne pepper adds warmth as you eat them. This will become a Thanksgiving favorite for us!
These are good - and garlicky!. Depending on the size of your sweet potatoes, you may want to add the sour cream slowly. Mine got a little looser than I bargained for. The cayenne is a nice touch, but go easy unless you know you love it. Thanks for the recipe!
Superb! These potatoes were absolutely wonderful, and met my expectations. We enjoyed the combination of the sweetness of the potatoes, and the strong garlic flavor, complimented by the heat and spice of the seasonings. I wasn't sure about trying to peel the potatoes after baking, so I peeled them first, and wrapped each one in foil. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thank you Kelly for introducing me to some unique ideas I never would have thought of!
It's a savory sweet potato dish unlike the traditional sweet potato casseroles with cinnamon & sugar. It was not my absolute favorite dish, but it was a nice change of pace.
Very good!My boyfriend loves sweet potatoes but I had never made them. This was my frist time. I didnt have cream cheese so I left that out,didnt seem like it was missing anything.This recipe was a hit! Thanks we will be makin this one again.
This was a good change from your typical cinnamon spiced, sugar laden mashed sweet potatoes. The flavor was very nice, albeit a tad on the rich side. When I make this again, I'll cut back a bit on the sour cream. 3/4 cup was a bit too much for my taste.
