Pretty good. Instead of sea salt, I used a little but of Crazy Mixed Up Salt.

This is so good. It was creamy and not dry at all.

I love finding new ways to prepare sweet potatoes that don't involve the usual sickly sweet versions that are covered in brown sugar or other sweetness. These are really creamy and very tasty. The only issue I had was that I had to add in some liquid, otherwise they were too thick and more of a gluey consistency because of the cheese. Apparently the AR Editors think this makes 12 servings. It does not. I'd say 6-8 servings tops, unless you're planning on only giving your guests a couple bites each. The recipe submitter does state 8 servings in her personal version of this recipe though, which is more realistic. I will definitely make this again. It's the type of side dish that will leave your guests wondering what that secret ingredient is in your potatoes! Thank you harmonyb for sharing your recipe!
