My husband and I both loved them. We put a little honey butter on them and they were perfect. Plus it was a great way to sneak in an extra hidden serving of vegetables.

It's a great way to get the kids to eat that weird orange potato. I love them, too, with a little sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar.
