    justcallmetoni's Note:

    This is mom's alternative to the traditional sweet potatoes usually served at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love the pairing of the lemon and spuds, but would personally cut back the sugar a bit, perhaps 1/4 cup of one or the other. (But I don't like candied yams at all.)

      Delicious, delicious, delicious Toni. We loved these potatoes. I served them with Grecian Pork and brussel sprouts. The lemon glaze is perfect with the sweet potatoes. I used 1/3 cup of white & brown sugar mixed, it worked well. I will be making these again and again. They were quick and easy to make. The pototes were fork tender and oh so tasty. Thank you so much for sharing.
