"I have never got such rave reviews for a sweet potato dish than I did when I served this. Honestly, this is our FAVORITE way to make sweet potatoes. The almond flavor really complements the orange sauce. The topping adds the perfect crunch and really rounds out the dish."

"This was quite good, but my family unanimously agreed Taste of Home's Pretzel-Topped Sweet Potatoes is the better recipe."
