"Delightful and not overly sweet. My first time making a twice-baked sweet potato and not a regular potato but it won't be the last--I'm keeping this one. The only change I made was to add about 1/2-3/4 tsp. of kosher salt to the potatoes as I mashed them, but then I always add some salt to my sweet potatoes no matter the recipe. Give these a try--and not just for Thanksgiving!"
