    These are awesome! I made as directed except that I was out of chives and used green onions to garnish. I considered going back to eat leftovers as dessert. lol. Thanks Jackie for a wonderful new keeper. Made for Whats on the Menu tag.

    I've made this for the holidays for 5 years now. I hated the marshmallow topped sweet potatoes we had when I was a child and decided to give these a try. I leave out the cumin but if you try these do keep the bacon- the smoky taste is incredible with the maple sweetness.

    I scaled this down to half and left out the bacon. Loved the subtle sweet/spiciness.
