Wonderful! Just a little tweaking and it came out great! I found that a 9x13 pan was a little too big maybe a 9x9 would do better? Also I added a full cup of pineapple along with some cinnamon. Not too sweet not too tangy. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

This was easy to make and my family did eat it but personally I think the sweet potatoes with the brown sugar sauce and marshmallows on top is way way better. So if you like that a lot you might be a little disappointed with this. I thought this needed a little more of something not sure what. Read More

Wow was this good (and easy)! To save time I peeled and cubed the sweet potatoes boiled them for 8 minutes then drained. I also added 1 cup pineapple instead of 1/2 cup. I too used a 9x9" baking dish as others suggested (perfect size!). My recipe was ready after 30 minutes of baking. Thanks so much for the recipe! Read More

I always try a new sweet potato recipe every Thanksgiving until...my husband no longer lets me make any other recipe but this one! It's light not-so-sweet flavor is the perfect compliment to Thanksgiving dinner! Read More

I was slightly hesitant about this wondering how the pairing of pineapple and sweet potato would taste but thought it turned out excellent! I was tired of seeing recipes for sweet potato casseroles that really packed the calories with sugar syrup marshmallows etc. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet and I wanted something that would bring out that flavor while staying healthy since this is one of the best veggies for you! This recipe did it for me. I can't wait to make for my family on Thanksgiving! This could even pass as a dessert! Read More

The addition of maraschino cherries adds something special to this wonderful dish! Perfect for holiday dinners but my husband and I cheat and eat it throughout the year... Shh! Thanks Delora! Read More

At our place everyone just takes a tiny spoonful of sweet potatoes (but we can't pass them up just the same!) so I don't want to spend too much time and energy on them. I used a 40oz can of sweet potatoes which seemed more like 2 potatoes worth and cut the other ingredients accordingly. I'd probably do that again because it was so quick and easy to mash them and mix this up. I'd use a little less sugar next time since the pineapple adds some sweetness. I think it needs a little something on top for presentation sake too - maybe cut the sugar in the potatoes and just add a crumb topping. Will try these again. Read More
