We loved the flavor of these potatoes. They tasted like our favorite baked sweet potatoes that have a brown sugar, butter and pecan topping. My only change next time will be to steam the potatoes for about half the time I did last night. I used my rice/veggie steamer and steamed the sliced potatoes for 35 minutes. Next time I'll only steam them about 20 minutes. I'm hoping they will hold up to the caramelizing process if they are a little firmer to begin with. I tried to let them brown a little more, but they were quickly becoming chunky mashed potatoes, which only mattered for photographic purposes, they tasted so awesome that no one cared what shape they came to the table in. ;) Thanks for sharing some great recipes for us to remember you by. Made & enjoyed for cookathon in Pammy's memory.
