After reading the reviews i decided to add cinnamon brown sugar and pecans to the dish. All I can say is yummy! This will get worked into the rotation of side dishes for sure.

Really no taste at all- the canned stuff has more taste and a better texture if easy is all you're looking for. Need some spices- the honey isn't nearly enough to flavor.

With some additions this was a big hit. I substituted some of the honey for maple syrup added cinnamon baked it much longer with no covering basting from time to time the last 15 minutes I added pecans and sprinkled with some brown sugar.

very easy to make. I didn't have time to do exactly what the recipe said but I used canned sweet potatoes and then added the honey and other yummy components to it!

This recipe had some good flavor although a little more butter than necessary. We followed the recipe as instructed and found the flavor to be good...the sweet potatoes had enough flavor that the honey/butter just enhanced! Will be making again soon!

I personally didn't eat this beacause I don't like sweet potatoes. I made this for my parents and they seemed to like it. I added ground ginger and cinnamon to it as well. I sprinkled it on top before I baked it. My dad told me you have to like sweet potatoes to enjoy this dish. Try it...that's all I can say.

Simple side dish and very tasty. Also added some fresh grated ginger over the potatoes before popping them in the oven for some added flavor. Will make again.

I added the cinnamon and ginger as others suggested. I also mixed in some pecans. It took longer to cook than the 30 min. stated. I finished it off in the microwave. We loved the honey flavor. Could do it with less butter.

I thought that these would be sweeter than they were. I added some brown sugar and enjoyed them alot more.
