Delicious. I halved the recipe but not the amt. of bacon. I would even add a bit more. Also I would use medium sweet potatoes rather than lg. as well as med. white potatoes. I would definitely make it again. Read More

This recipe had me worried once I started actually making them it seemed a little over the top with taste but it was delicious!! Over cooked the potatoes a little but it was still really good! Read More

Very good! I decreased the recipe to 6 servings but increased the bacon to 4 slices. I actually enjoyed this more cold than I did warm but either way is good. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I had to leave out the red onion because I didn't have any but followed the recipe other than that. It was good warm but it was great cold! The flavors really had time to meld and I don't think that it needed the red onions after all it was "oniony" enough. Next time I make this I'm going to try it with just the sweet potatoes yummy!

This was very good. I served it the next day out of the frig. and it was good that way also although I think it would have been better warm. The only change that I made was I added at little bit of sugar. Read More
