  1. Great Recipe. This is a yummy staple in our family. The only thing I do different, is I peel the potatoes first as it is easier and quicker to do when cold than when soft and hot.

  2. Mmmm…yes, sweet potatoes are really an excellent year-round side dish. Plus it’s so child-friendly. It’s very easy to get my five-year-old son to eat it, and he is quite finicky!

  3. Once the potatoes are cooked, I cut them in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon -no fuss, no muss, and no burned fingers!
