    Great! Can see why people like these, yum! Baked em on 425 F for 25 minutes after briefly melting the coconut oil in the pan (in the warming oven) and then tossing everything else (except fresh herbs) until coated. Didn’t bother turning them so they had a crisp side and a soft side, but delicious nonetheless. Added a pinch of cayenne pepper and used cilantro because I didn’t have parsley. Worked fine that way! Pretty much fool proof. Oh, and I sliced the sweet potato like fries, not cubes. Author had a stroke of genius to use garlic and cinnamon, kudos!!

    I boiled the potatoes first. I also added ground cinnamon and ginger. I used butter vs. coconut. oil. The family loved it. Definitely will be making this more often.

    This came out great. I would like to add that I decided to boil the sweet potatoes prior to adding them to the skillet, based off some of the other reviews which stated that the sweet potatoes were a bit hard. I highly recommend cutting up the sweet potatoes in small pieces first, then boiling them until they’re just about done. After that, continue to cook them in the skillet with all the ingredients listed. I decided to add a bit of brown sugar for a tad extra sweetness, and it came out great!! The only reason why I give it 4 stars is because I believe boiling them first makes all the difference.

    I like the combination of cinnamon and garlic with this recipe. I read the comments and decided to avoid a bland flavor by adding a little bit of cayenne and paprika with salt and pepper. My family likes a little heat. Also added just a sprinkle of monk fruit sweetener. Omitted the parsley. I did sautee them on the pan which was easy. I may try roasting them in the oven next time. Used coconut oil but had to add a bit more during the cooking process. Would recommend covering the pan the last few minutes or more to soften the potatoes all the way through. Will definitely make again!

    subbed basil for parsley. should've bought bigger sweet potatoes to have less to peel, but a good side to make while prepping a main since you only have to stir every so often

    I was not a fan of these. They weren’t terrible but I did not enjoy them at all.

    Everyone loved them. I did substitute olive oil for the coconut oil because of allergy.

    It was delicious!! Even my boyfriend and my kids liked them so yummy I cooked mine on the skillet for this amount of time and then put them in the oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes so they were soft on the inside and a little crispy on the outside so amazing

    WOW ridiculous! This makes a bunch of perfectly cooked bites with so much flavor! I covered my potatoes for the last 4 minute stretch of cooking still stirring occasionally to not stick Good god this was awesome. For 2 people we used 2 potatoes and it was a ton with leftovers.

    Delicious. Didn't realize till I got home from the store that I had got white sweet potatoes so it wasn't as golden as the picture but the flavor was wonderful.

    As you can probably tell, once I cubed the potatoes, everything else was in my head. I used garlic, green onions and pecans to favor the potatoes. It was good but I love sweet potatoes in any form.

    This was not good at all. I added honey to it on my plate just to be able to eat it..

    They were really good but would maybe substitute the coconut oil for olive oil seeing how the potatoes are sweet enough. I also added some paprika for a little spice. Other than that they were delicious.

    What a delicious way to eat healthy. I started them on the stovetop, then into the oven to get caramelized and soft.

    They had a great flavor, but I wish the sweet potatoes we softer in the center.
