These are delicious. I followed that recipe as stated but left out the pineapple didn't have any. I will be making this again. Thank you .
Wow! These were soooooo good! It could almost be a dessert. Made these to go with our Easter ham. Easy to prepare, just had to be really careful when scooping out the potatoes. I followed the recipe, but omitted the marshmallows and garnished them with pecan halves. Thank you for the great recipe, Anme. It's a keeper.
These great tasting yams [which is what I use] accompanied Boomette's Pineapple Pork Chops & were a great hit with the neighbors! I'm a big fan of yams anytime of the year! This recipe is especially great for me, 'cause the shells are part of the finished dish! OUTSTANDING & a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
Honestly, Anme, just cut this out! I read your reviews and Mirj just made me want to try this. Although, I had hoped not to eat them all in one sitting or afternoon. However; this just did not happen as they were gone, POOF! I followed this exactly, although on mine only, I added a dash of salt. The aroma that comes from the baking of the potatoes and then mixing this all together including the raisins, pineapple, maple syrup are just so perfect coupled together. Once reheated a delight on your fork and the need for one more comes to mind. I personally wouldn't change anything and plan on serving this for "Saturday Lunch at the Farm" Thank you so much! Anme!
Anme, you are evil! These sweet potatoes are evil! You should call them Evil Sweet Potatoes! I made 4, as the recipe states, but it was only enough for 2! And you would think that the two of us each had two each, but nooooooooooo! I made these for a friend and I to try at work, and she had one, and I had three! Of course, it wasn't all in one meal, it was more like three over the course of 4 hours, but I STILL ATE THREE OF THESE, OMG, I AM SUCH A PIG!!! And they were so good! I left out the marshmallows and added just a few more pecans to compensate, and I CANNOT BELIEVE I ACTUALLY ATE THREE OF THESE IN ONE AFTERNOON!!! My advice to you if you make these, eat one, then muzzle yourself. People on diets are not safe with these babies in the house!
id like to start this out with a note to self: never let DBF stab the potatoes again. I cooked them for the first part in the microwave (30 min) - which probally didnt help the situation much considering dbf got alittle over zealious with the pokeing, so the two of the halves didnt make it past the spooning out part (i used 3 potatoes but didnt decrease the other ingredients as per other reviews) but i made due - and had 4 halves piled high with filling. i tasted the mixture and decided it needed some more brown sugar, about double what was called for. i nixed the raisins and only put the pecans and marshmellows on top per each family member tastes, also sprinkled some brown sugar on top of all of them. I really liked them, and dbf said they were good... my fathers sick so he didnt eat his but im sure he would have felt the same.. thanks for sharing anme
These are really good - on the sweet side like the name indicates, but full of flavor thanks to the blend of spices and fruits. The cream adds a subtle richness to the dish. I used a blend of raisins and dried cranberries, and for the first cooking phase, I microwaved the sweet potatoes. I skipped the marshmallows. Thanks for sharing!
These were good but I'm surprised I didn't enjoy them more since I love all the ingredients; I can't put my finger on it except that maybe there was too much going on with the raisins and pecans; also they were very rich, even without the marshmellows. I did enjoy the pineapple which lightened it up - even more pineapple would be good. These would be nice for the holidays with a few of the contest ingredients removed.
