I tried this for the first time at Thanksgiving and my husband just loved it! it will become a regular holiday dish I know. The marshmellows on top did not melt well; I think next time I will try marshmellow creme instead. I'd also like to try this with fresh baked sweet potatoes instead of canned. Read More

I thougtht this recipe was a little bland but the rest of my family really liked it. If I made it again I'd add brown sugar to the top and use miniature marshmallows. Read More

I loved this recipe! It seemed I never could get my sweet potatoes sweet enough to suit me. In the past I added hoards of sugar but it just didn't work. This recipe came out with the perfect amount of sweet--and it was easy too! Read More
