I thought this was more sweet than savory, but it was very good nonetheless. I only added a couple of sprinkles of cayenne pepper, and that gave it just the right kick for my taste. I also served with an over easy egg on top and loved the creamy yolk mixed in with the soft sweet potato and ham mixture. This was a healthy and filling breakfast for me, and I will definitely be making this again.

This was tasty. I doubled all of the ingredients and served it with eggs and toast as a breakfast dinner for my family.

This was wonderful. I actually used this as a "jumping off" recipe and it turned out very nicely. I added one ingredient, some diced apple. Due to making it for a crowd I increased everything(except the cayenne) and baked it, layered (1/2 the potatoes first on which I sprinkled the cinnamon, cayenne and brown sugar, then the apples/onions, topped with the ham, then repeated) in a 9 x 13 dish with just enough water to cover the bottom of the dish, altho I think apple or orange juice would work great. I dotted the top with 6 thin pats of butter- did not use the oil called for- and covered it with foil during baking. Flavor was great and it was a perfect brunch dish. It took longer to bake than I thought it would; it cooked at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours to get the potatoes soft ( I had pre-microwaved the potatoes but they were still pretty hard when I loaded the casserole).

This was fantastic, made no changes hubby loved them. Made them twice first time with the ham. Second time forgot to buy the ham so I fried chopped bacon and it also turned out great.

Made it this morning and followed the recipe as is. Everyone loved it except for the cayenne. Next time I will cut it back or out. Also as suggested by another reviewer added an over easy egg on top and let the yolk mix in. Absolutely great!
