Oh, sooooooooooooo delicious!! Very simple to make . . I always substitute fresh minced garlic (the kind that comes in the jar that you keep in the fridge) for whenever whole cloves are called for. 1/2 tsp. minced = 1 clove. I will definitely make these again!

I guess I am just use to brown sugar with my sweet potatoes, and these are definitely not sweet...not my favorite...I love garlic and I love sweet potatoes...just not together...sorry.

Really yummy! I did the whole thing in the oven - well worth it if you've got the time up your sleeve. My finace and I both really enjoyed these - will definitely be making again.
