This is one of our favorite dishes to make. It’s a go-to when we have sweet potatoes that we want to serve as a savory dish. We like more heat, so sometimes add more cayenne. Of course adding bacon makes it amazing.

I love this recipe and have made it many times. I do it just as it is, and depending on the size of the sweet potatoes, often have enough for next lunch leftovers. I highly recommend!

I had to bake my sweet potatoes a lot longer than the recipe says, closer to 75 minutes. Maybe the sweet potatoes were too large, but they were the smallest 2 at the store. Other than that, the chard and onions were so simple to make and super tasty.

I was happy to find a large sweet potato and made two disshes out of one potato. I also used Kale for my greens. I thought it was quite yummy. Loving all these recipes!

I had trouble with this recipe. Our local health food stores (I went to 4, plus 3 regular groceries) don't carry orange-flesh sweet potatoes right now. They only have white-flesh sweet potatoes. Since many groceries miss-label yams as sweet potatoes, I tried this recipe w/ a "red" (orange) flesh yam. It took 2-3x longer to cook. It still didn't finish cooking. It didn't taste as good as even a white sweet potato. I don't know whether to try again or not. They mean sweet potatoes, not yams

Definitely sweet potatoes. Yams is actually a misnomer for this orange tuber. http://homecooking.about.com/od/howtocookvegetables/a/sweetpotatodiff.htm

Are you sure these are not Yams?
