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.
Made this for a dinner party and everyone raved about it. This will definitely be repeated on my thanksgiving menu.
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.
I was never a fan of the candied sweet potatoes we always had for thanksgiving dinner or the mushy mashed casserole from canned potatoes. Always found them to be too rich to go with the other traditional dishes. This is the perfect recipe. Fresh sweet potato taste and very flavorful, without too much butter or sugar. Made it last year. Everyone loved it and requested it again
Love this recipe. Didn't change a thing. Canned sweet potatoes would work perfectly in this too. This is definitely a go to holiday recipe. never using another sweet potato recipe for thanksgiving.
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!
It was a hit at my Easter dinner!
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year and it was a hit! My husband and I both loved it.
