My husband and I love this dish! It's very easy to put together and so good! We prefer to not add the ketchup on top though, but we do add it into the mix.

I found this recipe on, but it was a higher fat and calorie version. The original recipe was posted by Tish and it's Baked Sweet Potato recipe #55678 on 'Zaar. Anyway, I had to make some significant substitutions to make the fat and calorie counts more diet friendly. It worked and this turned out fantastic! We served this with lean country style pork ribs and they were amazingly good. I think this would also pair well with Salmon.
