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!
Loved this recipe-and sweet potatoes are great for a carb option that's better for you!
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.
Followed this recipe exactly and my family so enjoyed them! Simple and easy! Will keep sweet potatoes around regularly to have this as an easy side for any meal. Thank you!
