Kahlua® Sweet Potatoes

We have had this side dish for Thanksgiving and noticed that it is not as filling as the usual pecan-encrusted mashed sweet potatoes. At Thanksgiving that is a good thing!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Rating: 4.8 stars
Once you taste this, you won't ever go back to the marshmallow-topped variety! I have peeled and cooked in the microwave, and also boiled the sweet potatoes. They taste the same no matter how you cook them. So, use the technique that works best for you!

Yummy Yam Casserole

Rating: 4.61 stars
I call this the 'recipe with legs' because every time I serve it, the recipe is requested. Even those who dislike yams and sweet potatoes love this tasty dish! This dish can be frozen, but freeze it without the pecan topping. Defrost before baking.

Baked Yam and Potato Casserole

Rating: 4.4 stars

I created this dish after getting tired of all those yam recipes using brown sugar and marshmallows. This makes sweet potatoes taste more like they should - a side dish rather than a dessert. Also, you can easily adapt this recipe to vegan simply by using soy cheese. It's worked well for me in the past.
