"One of the first dishes that I ever made. Not your traditional scalloped potatoes. This is an easy and tasty dish. My mom thought she hated sweet potatoes...it's been fun changing her mind."

"This made a nice, very easy weeknight dinner. Really liked the sweet potatoes on top. Mine was sort of swimming in liquid and that may be because I used an 9x9 inch pan. Using a rectangular or oblong pan may be the thing to do. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe. I would make it again."
"I made the recipe as directed using a 9x13 " baking dish. It was quite enjoyable . A very different, very tasty dish."
"Yum. I LOVE sweet potatoes and am allergic to chicken, so I've been researching unique ground beef recipes. This is one of my favorites - a keeper. Making it again tonight. (Side note - my children complain about everything and although they like the flavor of the beef, they don't like the sweet potatoes.)"
"This was really good. I would have never thought of putting ground beef and sweet potatoes together. I had ground beef and sweet potatoes on hand, but no ideas for dinner. This recipe came up when I put in the ingredients. I did not have any green peppers so had to omit them. I also needed it to be gluten free so I used cornstarch instead of flour and wheat free soy sauce. Next time I will include the peppers. I bet peas would be a nice addition also. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"My family loves this! I think if I made two pans it would have been gone. It is like meat loaf with yummy sweet potatoes on it. I used 1 .5 lbs of hamburger. This is a keeper:)"
"ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING! So easy to make & so wonderfully tasty! The only change I made was in NOT peeling the potatoes (I love those skins!), & we were completely satisfied with it ~ COMPLETELY! Thanks so much for posting a great recipe keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]"
"This was a surprise hit!! I wasn't sure about the ground beef not being cooked before - almost wrote you to ask if there was a mistake in the recipe!! But no, this turned out great!! Loved it!! Put a little less brown sugar and followed your recipe for the rest. Thanks BK!! :)"
"The first few minutes of dinner were filled with obnoxious MMMMM's. This is SOOOOO good! I will definately be making this again! Ditto from my roommate. I followed the recipe exactly, but I think it would be good with ground turkey or even chicken breasts. It also made the house smell heavenly!"
"YUM! Will definitely make this again!"
"Really enjoyed this recipe, although I had to modify it for the ingredients we had on hand. I used ground turkey and fresh squeezed orange juice. I can't wait to try it with pineapple juice sometime, however my family liked it this way. Thanks for sharing!"
"Wow - this was amazing! What a delicious way to enjoy the healthful sweet potato. I left out the onion, otherwise made just as specified. I used lean ground beef and it was juicy but not at all greasy. I just loved this dish - thanks for posting another winner!"
"Well I'm not sure where I went wrong but this just didn't work out. I ended up after 2 hours of cooking with still raw sweet potatoes and not all the way done meat. I also had to pour off like 2 cups of liquid. The flour just made it grainy and not too appetizing. I think it would have been really great, but with some modifications to the prep and cooking. Maybe use less pineapple juice and reduce the sauce before cooking to make it sort of a glaze and par bake the sweet potatoes...I will try again and re-post."
