These sweet potatoes are easy, delicious, and a beautiful addition to a plate. The only differences to the recipe I made were to toast the pecan pieces, adding a smoky note to the dish and to garnish with chopped flat leaf parsley. For people who want to add some spice to this dish, some crushed red pepper would be a great addition to the sweet. salty and smoky tastes. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

I did love this recipe. I made it exactly as written and it was simple, yet delicious. The syrup (I did use real maple syrup) made it perfectly sweet and the pecans added another very complimentary flavor. I will use this recipe again.

This was a pretty good side dish - I wish I would have had maple syrup - used some syrup that no one liked on pancakes because it wasn't sweet enough - it was perfect for the potatoes. Forgot the nuts...

These were absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using kosher salt instead of sea salt because that was what I had on hand. My husband thought they were the best sweet potatoes he had ever had. Certainly on the top of my list. We will definitely be having these again.
