    I have never changed my own recipe for 20 years. I was the one asked to always bring my sweet potatoes for every holiday. Well let me say i ventured out on my own looking for new ways for them and saw yours..........OMG!!!!! Everyone get this recipe!!!!! I wouldnt change a thing on it. I left my potatoes as halves and cooked 5 minutes longer. Very delicious!!!! we used the sauce over the turkey as well.
