I made this for the first time for Thanksgiving last week and it was awesome. I used 5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and boiled, so the casserole would not be dessert-sweet (and so I'd have more leftovers!). It was the perfect flavor. The pecan topping provides a great crunch. I'll be making this every year!!

This was good but so sweet we decided it could be a breakfast casserole for people who eat donuts for breakfast. Not a vegetable dish for my family.

A wonderful receipe. I made this for Thanksgiving and my mother-in-law made her version. My recipe won hands down (not that I am counting :) I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of the evaporated milk. The only thing I would change would to put it in a larger dish so I could double the recipe for the topping because people really liked that part of it. The family thought it was the best recipe for sweet potatoes ever!

i have been making this type of sweet potatoes for a long time; love it love it. i however use a lot less sugar, maybe 1/3 cup st most, sometimes don't use the milk, and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg on top before putting on the topping. yummy yummy.

I made this dish for last year's Thanksgiving dinner and all I can say is that my 35 guest loved it and are begging for it again this year!

This is the best sweet potato casserole recipe here! I have used this recipe for the last 3 years, and every year I have to keep making more and more. I have yet to find anyone who didn't like it.

I used 2 29 oz cans of sweet potatoes, drained and mashed them, then followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It turned out great! A big hit with everyone!

Delicious tasting. I tried one of the recipes using canned sweet potatoes, but this is superior. A little more work, but well worth it. Everybody wanted this recipe!
