    Annacia's Note:

    Change your typical mashed sweet potatoes with this colorful, easy side dish. Saigon cinnamon is the best choice for this dish but, of course, any cinnamon will work well.

      This is a truly satisfying side dish, & one I'll make again & again, I'm sure, since I do love those sweet potatoes! Almost forgot to say that, as I usually DON'T do, I didn't peel the potatoes, because I happen to like the skins (very nutritious, too)I have to agree with you about the Saigon cinnamon, too ~ Absolutely wonderful, & since purchasing a large bottle of it early in the year, I'm definitely hooked on it & wouldn't buy another kind ever again! I also took a tip from another reviewer & used hazel nuts & will admit that they do add a nice touch to the whole thing! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

      This side dish was very good. I used only 1 large sweet potato and cut everything else in half. Served it with Chicken Francaise Chicken Francaise.
