I was very excited to make these, but the taste was just mediocre. Not a lot of flavor and not interesting. Not bad either, just not great. Will not make again.

The one star may be a little harsh, but I wouldn't make this recipe again so it's honest. I saw this recipe and couldn't wait to try it out (esp with Thanksgiving right around the corner). I love sweet potatoes, but my husband doesn't, so I thought this one with browned butter and bourbon would at least get him to try the potatoes. Everything worked out perfectly and cooking times are solid, I just didn't care for the final taste at the end. I let the bourbon cook out, and the butter was perfectly browned (a nutty smell, gorgeous amber color), but the final taste was just 'wrong.' I don't know another way to put it, but my taste buds just didn't like this combination at all; maybe it was the garlic. My husband ate the potatoes only because he was hungry; they didn't work for him either. So back to the drawing board on a good sweet potato recipe for my husband, and definitely not a keeper for me either.

We made these for Thanksgiving, tripling the amount of garlic, and all the adults loved them.

Wow! I made these the night before Thanksgiving to save some time tomorrow and got to try them and they are incredible! And I have been tired of sweet potatoes for a few years and haven't wanted to eat them, but this has made me fall in love with them agaIn! I really love them! Thanks for the great recipe!
