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!
This is an amazing side dish and a great snack when I have leftovers. I even brought them to a BBQ and it was the first thing gone. One time I ran out of Sea salt but Kosher salt worked just fine. But I do find that a higher quality of syrup tastes better with the potatoes. This is a keeper
Great! I toasted the pecans first.
These are incredibly delicious! The second time I made them I cut the potato chunks too small, make sure to follow the recipe exactly and you will love the result!
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...
This was so good. I'm probably never going to make sweet potatoes any other way now.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
