"I will switch out the walnuts for pecans. I am deathly allergic to Walnuts. Pecans are a great replacement and they will compliment this dish"

"This is amazing! Had dinner with friends and one of us has food issues with butter, corn syrup and gluten. Found this recipe, made and took it to the dinner. It was a hit! One guy told me he didn't especially like sweet potatoes, but liked these enough to have two helpings. Definitely making this again! Thank you!"
