Sweet Potatoes for Two

I like this recipe because it can be prepared for two, or easily increased to accommodate a large gathering. The color and taste of sweet potatoes make them a must for any holiday dinner!

    Really good, but its tastes better when you use raw potates instead of cooked. I bake them in the oven for about an hour and it tastes much better than having precooked. I double the recipe everyone loves it!!

    My family loves sweet potatoes and thinks this recipe is definitely a keeper. I have no problem with this and will be making this for them many more times.

    Easy to make. Not overly sweet, which was what I was looking for.
