The onions were quite tasty and it's a good dish if you like sweet potatoes not-so-sweet. I'm probably going to make this again with sweet onions only.

Out of this world!! The sweet potatoes and onions were carmelized and delicious and the almonds were a surprising crunch -- great combination! The sweetness of the amaretto was just right. I ...

My family loved it, I didn't have any amaretto, so, I used a little frozen O.J. I am not a big fan of thyme and I did find that it overpowered the recipe slightly. Next time I will cut the thyme...

These were good, but I will uncover them sooner than after 30 minutes because I want everything to crisp up. The leftovers mixed with broth and pureed made AMAZING soup.

I didn't have amaretto, so I used 3 tbsp (or so) of brown sugar and tossed with onion and sweet potatoes in large bowl. Next time I will use less onion. But overall my family loved it!
