    Natalia 3's Note:

    This is an easy recipe for those who enjoy the natural flavor of sweet potatoes with a savory twist. The sweet potatoes are doctored up just enough to bring out their own flavor. The amounts will vary depending on how flavorful your potatoes are. For this reason, all ingredients are "TO TASTE", whether quantities are specified or not :) Enjoy!

      Very nice dish that really dresses up the sweet potatoes. I omitted the butter and olive oil by sauteeing the onions in a pan prepared with non-stick cooking spray and only adding a little bit of skim milk to smooth out the mashed potatoes, rather than adding the butter. I omitted the salt and sugar, as well, and used veggie bacon. The flavors were wonderful, and it fit in well with Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you!

      I was looking for something different to serve with salmon and this seemed to fit. I left out the salt,syrup and bacon and added 2 chopped chipolta peppers. The flavors are wonderful and it is a keeper.

      Oh yum, outstanding! Served this for our Christmas Day meal, and it shone. I used 1 large sw. potato (about 2 lbs) and omitted the sugar or maple syrup. I upped the asiago cheese to a whole cup (mmmmmmm). I don't usually add salt to the cooking process but only at the table (using Celtic coarse grind sea salt). Thanks for making a special meal so much more special!
