      We really liked these. My hubby isn't a big fan of sweet potatoes and gobbled them right up. I added minced green onion, a squeeze of lime juice and about a teaspoon of dijon mustard. This is a really great tasting, healthy recipe that I'll be making again. Thanks for posting.

      Hi -made a double batch - added some finley minced onion as well as some dill and lemon zest - I also baked them to keep things as healthy as possble. These are delicious - they are in the freezer for a lazy summer meal or for a quick, easy and diffent lunch. Thanks for a great recipe!
