These are delicious! When we made them, the sweet potatoes actually stayed crunchy, which was surprising but really nice. The flavor and the texture are both wonderful.

What a great little recipe---these are definitely going to be made again and again. I've been looking to include sweet potatoes in our diet, and this one definitely hit the spot with the Peanut Gallery. I skipped the lemon slices and used orange zest instead, and I baked 'em in an 11x7 pan, so they were a bit deeper in the puddle than in a larger pan, and so didn't get crispy, but were still delicious. *Made for PAC Spring 08*
