Delicious and very easy! Wanted something for Thanksgiving that wasn't a typical sweet potato casserole. Loved the hint of lemon and the wonderful flavor oven-roasting gave the sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Simple easy recipe - we enjoyed them - I was lazy & bought frozen already prepared ones so this recipe was a snap. We never had sweet potatoes very often but find that we are enjoying them more & more in place of regular potatoes. Thanks for posting you recipe
