    Added a bit more salt and served with CL Halibut with Coconut-Red Curry Sauce and roasted brussels sprouts.

    My husband and I loved these! The curry and onions create a nice contrast to the sweetness of the potato. It was nice to have a savory sweet potato side rather than the usual sugary, buttery dish.

    Loved this. Very easy and so flavorful. I didn't have lemons on hand, so left that out. Used a bit less butter and half-and-half. The picture shows it a tad lumpy, so I beat with a hand mixer...we liked the smooth consistency taste-wise, but it looks better in the picture with some lumps!

    I don't know why the recipe calls for adding the cream and lemon juice together. The lemon juice curdles the cream! I used onions as I didn't like the look of my shallots. The curry flavor was mild. I liked the taste but my husband wasn't crazy about it.

    Just got back from a family Thanksgiving gathering, and someone brought this dish. I LOVE it! I'm so tired of the old standard sweet potato covered in brown sugar and marshmallows I could scream. I love plain, unadorned baked sweet potatos, and the curry adds a refreshing umph. I think I would use a milder curry, or a little less of it, but all in all, a good change of pace for the dinner table. I like the thought of using the leftovers (if there are any!) as a base for soup. No waste to this recipe- always a plus in today's economy.

    We made these for Easter dinner. It was a good alternative to the super sweet recipes out there for sweet potatoes. Those at the table who don't care much for curry or for sweet potatoes in general liked the dish. My husband still isn't sold on sweet potatoes over regular mashed potatoes, but even he agreed the dish deserved a 4.

    This looks amazing- any idea what alterations I would make to make this recipe fr roasted sweet potatoes instead of mashing them? I'm thinking roast in a combo of EVOO and the spice/lemon juice mixture. Theres no way to incorporate the cream then I guess? Let me know if you have any ideas!
