I made this without the almonds. I wasn't sure how well sweet potatoes and onions would work together, but to my surprise, they were delicious! I made this dish for my husband's birthday dinner, and they were a hit with everyone, including the inlaws and the kids. I would suggest lightly spraying the cookie sheet/baking dish, in addition to the oil used in the recipe, as the outermost edges of the potatoes and onions seemed to burn and stick to the cookie sheet.
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 did cheat a little -- rather than toast the almonds I just added them to the last 20 minutes of baking. They were perfectly toasted without the extra step. Great recipe!!
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 back by a third and I think the O.J. was a nice touch. Definitely a keeper.
I made this recipe in bulk for Thanksgiving dinner for 20. For anyone who doesn't really like the sickly-sweet candied yams normally served on holidays, THIS IS THE BEST!! I am going to make it a regular part of my "normal" dinners, too. It is easy, and very very tasty!! Thanks for the great recipe!
This is now one of my favorite side dishes an a refreshing alternative way to make sweet potatoes. I tried this the first time using a few tablespoons of orange juice and a little brown sugar as I didn't have Amaretto on hand. I used Amaretto the 2nd time, it's good either way but I preferred the O.J./brown sugar way best.
This was just awesome. I was a little skeptical about the combination of amaretto with the thyme and almonds, but it was so good. I followed the recipe exactly, only I did let it cook a little longer without the cover for a little more roasted flavor. Even my 11 year old ate the onions! Will definitely make again, and would be great for holiday meals.
