I felt the abundance of pineapple in this recipe totally masked the flavor of the sweet potatoes. As it was I cut back on the brown sugar but that didn't help. If you like pineapple this is the recipe for you. Read More

I'd looked for a recipe like this for several years after eating pineappled sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving at a friend's home. Her mother-in-law had brought it and it was a huge hit. Made this today for Christmas Day dinner and had no left overs. I did not use the nutmeg and I used only half as much pineapple after reading previous reivews. It was awesome! Will definitely make this a tradition in our home! Read More

Delish! I peeled the potatoes cut them up put them in a bowl with a little water and microwaved them for about 10 minutes. Then put them in a casserole dish with the other ingredients and heated them in the oven. Also I used chunk pineapple rather than crushed. This was soooo good! Update: Made this for the second time tonight but used crushed pineapple - - I like it much better with the pineapple chunks; you can't really taste the pineapple when it's crushed. The pineapple flavor comes through much more with the chunks and I think the chunks LOOK more appetizing. Read More

Very good and easy! I made this for the In-Laws at Christmas. The dish received rave reviews even though I didn't use nutmeg or ginger. I love the sauce so I made 2x the receipe and soaked the potatoes and pineapple overnight. The next day I merely baked it at 250 along with the ham for a few hours. Simple. Read More

This turned out good but next time I will not add the nutmeg. I think it would be great without it. Read More

I made this last year. When I asked my family about the sweet potatoes they all asked for this recipe again. When I made this last year it was awesome. The flavor was fantastic! I used only half to 3/4 of the 20 oz can of pineapple added 1 tbls of butter and topped with marshmallows at the end. The best part about this recipe it that it is not soggy or runny. This is now our favorite. Read More
