"Perfect balance of flavors without being overly sweet. As noted by others, this dish would work with even less sugar as the apples lend a natural sweetness to the dish. I may not make sweet potatoes any other way from now on!"

"Just the recipe I was looking for. It went really well together and wasn't too sweet. A nice side dish with ham!"

"Excellent. Next time I will cut down the sugar as the apples naturally sweeten things up."

"Really yummy with my pork roast. I just added a sprinkle of cinnamon on both layers, which was delicious. Definitely try this one!"

"I'll make the recipe as is the 1st time. The second time I make it, I think I'll add cinnamon and maybe a small amount of chopped pecans or walnuts. I think it is going to be a great addition to my side dishes!"
