I don't know who Barbara is but she deserves a medal for these sweet potatoes! Yeah, it's a simple recipe but the proportions are just perfect of all the ingredients. Not sickly sweet like some, not too seasoned like others. Thank you for sharing this!

Loved this recipe! They were a big hit at the dinner table. I have been trying every year to get this exact taste and every year I failed. This year I am so excited to have found this recipe. I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg and canned yams. Thank you so much for sharing. They brought back memories from my childhood. Everyone raved.

I have been making this recipe for years. I am going to try to make them in a crockpot for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I will let you know how I did.

I hit the jackpot when I found this recipe. My friend served a commercial version of this recipe which I loved but is much more expensive. This fab recipe is economical and a tastier version of the former. Kudos to you, Barbara!

I have always used canned yams. This year I wanted to try the real thing. I decided to try this recipe since it was so simple. OH MY OH MY OH MY!!!! I can not say enough about this recipe. Everyone thought they were the best yams ever! It was the highlight of the entire Thanksgiving dinner! Highly recommend for everyone to try this!

These were great! I am making my first thanksgiving dinner and I needed something traditional. I decided to try this yesterday just to make sure they were good enough to make on the big day. I did changed a few things though. Instead of real yams, I used the canned. Reason being is that I need something quick that I will be able to whip up, stick in the oven and forget about it until serving time. I am cooking for 20 people and dont have time to deal with 18 boiling sweet potatoes. I also used Cinnamon instead of nutmeg.
overall they turned out delicious and i willl definitley be making it for this thanksgiving!! Thanks Barb!!
