"This side is a great earthy compliment to any dish. Not too sweet, not too nutty just a perfect mix. Apple cider acts as the perfect balance for just a touch of sweetness. This recipe is perfect paired with Beef Tenderloin in a Port Shitake Reduction."

I liked how creamy these potatoes became. However, I couldn't taste the nuts at all and only used 1/2 the cream and sourcream. You could probably get away with using lowfat on both those items...

This does go very well with the Shitake / Port reduction tenderloin. The texture is very smooth, like a puree. The nutty / earthy hazelnut flavor is very nice.

As the recipe stands, it was not what I expected. Although my wife and I love sweet potatoes prepared many different ways, this was not one of our favorites. I'd love to give it five stars, bu...

GAH! So tasty, and SO SIMPLE. We didn't have hazelnuts, but walnuts were just as delicious I'm sure. And the apple cider is a PERFECT complement! YUM.

It was good, but seemed kind of bland to me. Maybe I just picked out bad potatoes? I added a little bit more cider and some brown sugar, but couldn't get it to taste just right. (to me).

DELICIOUS! And I paired these with the recommended beef tenderloin for a great combo.

This was delicious. I made it as a side dish to Rachael Ray's Peruvian Roast Chicken (which is fab to start with). Our guests raved about it, and I will unquestionably make it again. I did ad...
