    It’s great with some sour cream on the side

    I used frozen sweet potatoes and added a can of garbanzos as another reviewer suggested. The garbanzos were a little salty, which I think clashes with the sweet potatoes. Might try again without the garbanzos or maybe use fresh instead of canned. It’s a simple and easy recipe; it’s good, but I think it’s missing something.

    It was pretty good without any additional ingredients, but I added some chickpeas and canned tomatoes and it was much better in taste.

    with your regular scrambled eggs and your choice of fat, maybe an avocado! For added proteins, you can some black beans in to the mix or even some cubed teriyaki chicken if meat if your go-to protein!

    Delish. We didn’t add parsley, and chose to use a sauté pan. It went well with the leftover Teriyaki Sesame Seed Drumsticks we made from another recipe from Yummly. Kudos!

    I cooked it with the lid right towards the end and when i added the seasoning i added a tsp more coconut oil was not dry at all

    Great recipe !! Not dry at all. If you cover the potatoes while cooking for the first 20 minutes, the moister stays. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    No one in my family was a fan besides my husband but we might try it again only roasted.

    There is very little moisture on this as you cool the potatoes in coconut oil and it gets soaked up. Then you add a bunch of dry seasonings and just seemed too dry so I added some water and let that absorb. Tasty though!

    Made this tonight and it was a hit with the people that didnt like sweet potatoes (myself included) as well.

    The garlic was a deal breaker. I am adventurous when it comes to trying new foods and new recipes, but even though I made sure that I did NOT exceed the recommended amount of garlic (and actually did a bit less) AND added some brown sugar, it just wasn't a good fit. I liked the skillet-cooking aspect of the dish, and I will definitely try it again -- but WITHOUT any garlic.

    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!!

    They were delicious. After reading some reviews, I baked them, & used butter. This recipe is a do over!

    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!
