I only had white sweet potatoes and I used molasses instead of maple syrup because that is what I had on hand. It was very good. Some of my potatoes got "mashed" while others were chunky but that's my fault for not making them the same size. I did saute for about 5 minutes when done to thicken it a bit but otherwise it was very good and fast! I will definitely be doing this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Read More

These were incredibly easy to throw together. They're very sweet though so I added some salt, pepper and orange zest for extra flavor and balance. I also used butter instead of margarine. Went great with smoked turkey! Read More
