"These sweet potatoes are SO good! I was put off by the garlic salt and pepper at first. But, I like a culinary challenge, so I went for it. Boy was I glad I did! I used Johnny's Garlic bread seasoning instead of the garlic salt and pepper. The garlic salt gives the potato a cheesy texture and taste while still staying sweet. I can't really describe it, just try them! You'll be glad you did!"
