Coconut Sweet Potatoes

Rated as 2.5 out of 5 Stars

"In Nacogdoches, Texas, Hasel King mashes sweet potatoes with pineapples, orange juice and seasonings. With a streusel-like topping of coconut and pecans, its sweet taste and pretty look will garner praise. TIP: To switch it up, follow Hasel's lead and substitute peanuts for the pecans."
