unsalted butter, softened
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying
thinly sliced shallots
The cardamom adds so much depth to this otherwise simple recipe. I made them for our "fancy" christmas dinner and everyone raved (even the little ones)! I skipped the fried shallots and instead put the potatoes into a caserole dish and sprinkled with brown sugar. Then put it under the broiler until the brown sugar was crispy.
These weren't bad. I love sweet potatoes and love, love, love cardamom, and while they went nicely together, there was a little too much cardamom and my husband kept saying they tasted dessert-y. Also, for texture and ease, I just mashed the potatoes with a fork since they were incredibly soft after roasting. When you try these, cut back on the cardamom, but just by a pinch or so.
These potatoes were incredibly easy. I was so grateful I didn't have to peel them, and once they were baked the rest was a snap. They got rave reviews from my family. Best of all, they didn't need added sugar or syrup, so our diabetics didn't have to compensate for it. The cardamom gave it interesting flavor and the fried shallots were a nice complement. It was a terrific addition to our Thanksgiving meal.
VERY tasty recipe, I love the cardamom with the sweet potatoes. I made this for Thanksgiving last year and it went fast, I am looking forward to having it again this year!
You can even leave the butter out and it's just fine.
These were quite tasty. I like the flavor of sweet potatoes (and they're good for you!), but I am NOT a fan of the whole marshmallow/brown sugar thing. I also didn't have shallots but used mild red onion in its place, which was okay, though next time I would chop it rather than slice it in rings.
delicious!!! make extra shallots because people hog them - it was the only dish at thanksgiving that was completely gone.
I liked the combination of flavors in this recipe. I am a fan of cardamon. However, I would simply fork mash the Sweets next time to give them a little more texture.
These are fantastic! I didn't whip them, just used a masher. Everyone loved them and the deep fried shallots are a winner. These will become part of the rotation. Simple, different and oh so savoury.
