This is a great casserole--not too sweet. I've adapted it from several other recipes. I usually double this for Thanksgiving. To make lighter version replace the eggnog with skim milk and use reduced calorie margarine.

Very very good. I reduced the brown sugar to C in both cases and added a generous shot of Maker's Mark. (put some in the sweet potatoes too.) Assumed egg whites were to be beaten to stiff peaks and folded in. Read More

Since I made this for Easter I substituted 2% milk for the eggnog. It has a wonderful flavor and the topping makes a nice crust to go along with the sweet potato. I did place it under the broiler for a few minutes to get the top a little crisper. I will definitely make again! Read More

I love this recipe. I have been using it for a while now and everyone who tries it likes it. The only thing that I do different is I don't use the egg whites in it. It makes the potatoes a little more runny but they still taste great. Read More

I was so happy to find this recipe. My husband loves the gooey marshmallow casserole but I don't care for it. This is a great compromise sweet without being over the top. Even my mother-in-law who can always find something to complain about loved it! Read More

Really good and a bit different than the other versions. I added a bit of cinnamon to the topping used milk instead of eggnog and browned the sugar under the broiler at the end. Really great side dish and I will definitely make again maybe splenda next time. Read More
