FANTASTIC! I would have never guessed mint would be so great. I microwaved 2 medium sweet potatoes (fork-pricked) for 8 minutes and halved the rest of the ingredients. I have a mint plant next to my garden and love finding mint recipes. This will definitely become a staple for my husband and me since we love fast dinners and sweet potatoes.

I'm in heaven! I had no idea that I could eat a baked sweet potato without loading up on the brown sugar. This butter combination is fabulous with the mint and it compliments the sweet potato flavor perfectly. Thanks so much, Lazyme : )

This was so easy to make and it tastes wonderul. I added a little extra honey and whipped up the butter with my immersion blender. Thank you Lazyme.
