I love these potatoes. I first saw this recipe in BHG magazine in 2006 and made them for Thanksgiving. They were such a hit that ive made them every year since. Easy to make, not too sweet, and the cranberry relish and nuts put them over the top.

Would love to try this. You used Yams instead of Sweet Potatoes. There is a difference. Hope sweet potatoes work as well.
