I came across this recipe as I was looking for a unique sweet potatoe casserole recipe to take to our church Harvest Supper the following day. I was surely glad I found it. I received many comments that it was delicious--even one that said she could eat it as dessert. The cranberries added a nice "fruity" taste, and the pecans a tasty crunch. I even added some coconut to the topping for even a little more texture and taste. My family's only disappointment was that we only had one small serving left to bring home. If you want to cut down the sugar a bit, I don't think you'd lose a thing as the potatoes are naturally sweet. This will become a holiday tradition in our family.
This was exactly what I was looking for with the yams in chunks not puréed and skipping the marshmallows. Next time I would do less topping but it was delish and everyone loved it.
Made this for a dinner party and everyone raved about it. This will definitely be repeated on my thanksgiving menu.
Made these on a whim to add to heist as dinner last year and my family RAVED about it! It's the dish they always ask me to bring now. I made mine with fresh cranberries and walnuts and it was delicious!
We loved it!
It was a hit at my Easter dinner!
Delicious! I mixed in some butternut squash pieces and used less sugar than called for.
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year and it was a hit! My husband and I both loved it.
