I have only had sweet potatoes a handful of times, and they were almost always sweet. We are trying to eat healthier and since sweet potatoes are better for you than white potatoes, I decided to try this recipe. I am glad I did! I used 2 large sweet potatoes, so we probably had a little less than 7 cups, and I used 2 tbsp of light margarine rather than 1 tbsp butter, but otherwise followed the recipe. The potatoes were super tender and the onion had just a tiny bit of snap left (which I like). We will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe that makes eating a little healthier easier.

Great potatoes!! I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and it was the perfect amount for my dinner and leftovers for lunch (no one else eats sweet potatoes in the family). I used a shallot rather than onion and just drizzled the butter on top, didn't broil them. Will be making these again! They were sweet naturally without adding brown sugar and they were cooked perfectly in 1 hour. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #64.

I waned something different for my sweet potatoes , not the usual sweet sugary recipes I always find. These fit the bill, they were easy to make the cooking time for me was perfect. The potatoes and onions were not over or under cooked. What a hit they were at my dinner party. Everyone complimented the flavor and not one person missed the the sugary sweet potatoes I usually cook. Thank you for a delicious new way of preparing sweet potatoes.

This was good, but the sweet potatoes were beyond tender and more like mush! I would recommend reducing the cooking time for the potatoes. The timing was about right for the onions. It just depends on your personal taste. Thanks for sharing!

Another winner from Ms. Paula. These potatoes were incredible. Sweet and special. We loved the potatoes baked this way. They were perfectly cooked, soft, tender and full of flavor. The dish was quick and easy to make. The sweet potatoes really shone in this dish. Thank you for sharing with us. Made for PAC. :)

The only change I made to the recipe was to add in some chili powder for a bit of kick. Very nice potato recipe! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

actually came out too soft but still good - I drizzled with a small container of yogurt + lime juice :)

These were really good! I checked the oven about 10 minutes early and the potatoes were done, so I took them out. The onions were a little crunchy but still good. Next time I'll change it to 20 minutes instead of 30 for each time.
