Reviews for Glazed Sweet Potatoes
"These are so delicious and always devoured. My mother has been making these for years except she sliced them and laid them in rows and poured the sauce in between and over the top. I am now the sweet potato maker for our family Thanksgiving meal."
"So delicious! My whole family loved this. I will definitely be making these again."
"Delicious. I cut recipe in half. Steamed the potatoes till tender instead of boiling. Melted the butter, sugar and syrup (used sugar-free) together to make a glaze. Added potatoes tossing gently to coat and thicken and till heated through. Great substituting carrots or butternut squash."
"Wow! I'm making this for Thanksgiving. Thanks, Rosemary, for sharing this recipe. I cut the recipe down to fit into two ramekins. I used frozen cubed sweet potatoes. Delicious."
"Excellent flavor. Will make this again."
"Doubled the glaze recipe, and then I never stirred it once I poured it on the potatoes. I basted it so the potatoes wouldn't break apart. Came out beautiful and everyone LOVED it!"

"I made this recipe tonight, and it is yummy. I would definitely make this again. Maybe I will use the glaze for a ham."
