This recipe was very easy to make. Especially because I substituted
canned sweeted potatoes for fresh ones. Best of all, it tasted great!
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.
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!
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.
I really liked this recipe - it was just the right sweetness, without being filled with fat and calories. It was also easy and quick to prepare! I'll definitely be making this again.
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.
This turned out good but next time I will not add the nutmeg. I think it would be great without it.
I used this recipe last year and it was a huge success, my whole family loved it. I am already getting requests to make it again for this Thanksgiving.
