I made this for the first time for Thanksgiving last week and it was awesome. I used 5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and boiled, so the casserole would not be dessert-sweet (and so I'd have more leftovers!). It was the perfect flavor. The pecan topping provides a great crunch. I'll be making this every year!! Read More

This was good but so sweet we decided it could be a breakfast casserole for people who eat donuts for breakfast. Not a vegetable dish for my family. Read More

This is soooo good! My family said it is sinfully good. I think next year I will cut down on the sugar a bit maybe by a 1/4 cup and will add some cinnamon and nutmeg but it is absolutely wonderful as is. Read More

This recipe was awsome. I only used half of the amount of white and brown sugar and it came out perfect. A must serve dish for holidays. Read More

This was a great recipe. I did modify it just a bit and added a little bit (3 tablespoons) of Grand Marnier to the recipe which gave it a nice rich flavor and I also mixed some coconut in with the topping. I brought it to a work potluck and everyone is asking me for the recipe. Read More

I made this dish for last year's Thanksgiving dinner and all I can say is that my 35 guest loved it and are begging for it again this year! Read More

This is the best sweet potato casserole recipe here! I have used this recipe for the last 3 years and every year I have to keep making more and more. I have yet to find anyone who didn't like it. Read More

I prepared this for Thanksgiving and it was very yummy. I think I would add a bit more evaporated milk maybe 1/4-1/2 cup more--it was not as moist as I would have preferred. Read More

A new family favorite! We make it for every holiday and special events. Even my brother-in-law who hates sweet potato casserole loves this recipe. I have made it with the full sugar - and with 1/2 the sugar and would say that it is good either way. You would have to decide how sweet you want it. If you make it with the full sugar it will end up tasting like a dessert and not a dish that goes with dinner. You choose - it doesn't matter with this recipe because it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good either way. Read More

This was really easy to put together and can actually be made ahead up to the point of the topping and refrigerated. My family loved it - especially nice change from the usual marshmallows. Read More

Delicious tasting. I tried one of the recipes using canned sweet potatoes but this is superior. A little more work but well worth it. Everybody wanted this recipe! Read More
