Love that these are individual servings!

Are the potatoes parboiled first before applying the other ingredients???

No, the potatoes are not parboiled before baking. Enjoy!

Delicious. A wonderful change from the traditional marshmallow topping

Made this for Thanksgiving and they were wonderful and a big hit. Not one left. Thanks Mr. Food staff for giving me a fast easy no ho hum way to one of my fav side dishes.

What a unique and wonderful way to dress up a meal! I will try these this year but they can't be anything other than Oh so good! (Instead of syrup, try topping them off with 1-2 mini marshmallows during the last couple minutes of baking).

These are great. They also make a very pretty presentation for any meal.

Can't wait to try this recipe. It sounds great because my family loves baked sweet potatoes!

love these

I never even got to eat one, everyone grabbed them all, I guess they were great!

oooooh its soooooooo good!!!! :)

Sweet potatoes aren't just for Thanksgiving anymore! Easy to prepare, tasty and if you want leftovers...make extra. I made these again on Mother's Day everyone loved them!!!

We enjoyed these better than my normal candied sweet potatoes. These were even easier to make. Next time I will try a little less oil as I had so much on my cookie sheet afterwards I made a mess. I didn't use nuts-because I had used them all on something else but I'll be sure to do nuts next time. Thank you for sharing.

I will try these tomorrow! Thanks soooo much! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

I can't wait to try this one. It is so yummy looking!

So tasty - so easy.
