Reviews for Pretzel-Topped Sweet Potatoes
"Too much topping. We did not care for the cranberries with the sweet potatoes."
"I made this last year and received rave reviews. I used fresh sweet potatoes and this year I am using Gluten free pretzels in the topping. It really is a fantastic recipe"
"I tried this recipe about a year ago and everone raved about it. Since then I've tried several other sweet potatoe recipe on this site, all very tasty too; however, this is the BEST for how the ingredients compliment each other in taste and texture. Plus the eye candy presentation and inviting smell ranks this colorful tasty dish as a must have, to make our family festive Christmas meal complete. Thank You for sharing your delicious recipe."
"I loved these sweet potatoes!"
"This is AMAZING! For personal preference, I used boiled fresh sweet potatoes and cut the sugar a bit by reducing the brown sugar in the topping to 3/4 cup and the sugar in the potato to 1/4 cup. (Still a very sweet dish)!"
"This looks fabulous and tastes awesome. The cranberries add a sweet, tangy surprise and the pretzel rods, pecans, and brown sugar all add to the taste as well as presentation. A real winner that guests rave about and ask for the recipe!"
