These sweet potatoes are easy, delicious, and a beautiful addition to a plate. The only differences to the recipe I made were to toast the pecan pieces, adding a smoky note to the dish and to garnish with chopped flat leaf parsley. For people who want to add some spice to this dish, some crushed red pepper would be a great addition to the sweet. salty and smoky tastes. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!


Loved this recipe-and sweet potatoes are great for a carb option that's better for you!


This is an amazing side dish and a great snack when I have leftovers. I even brought them to a BBQ and it was the first thing gone. One time I ran out of Sea salt but Kosher salt worked just fine. But I do find that a higher quality of syrup tastes better with the potatoes. This is a keeper
