Wonderful! Just a little tweaking and it came out great! I found that a 9x13 pan was a little too big, maybe a 9x9 would do better? Also, I added a full cup of pineapple along with some cinnamon. Not too sweet, not too tangy. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This was easy to make and my family did eat it, but personally I think the sweet potatoes with the brown sugar sauce and marshmallows on top is way way better. So if you like that a lot, you might be a little disappointed with this. I thought this needed a little more of something, not sure what.

Wow, was this good (and easy)! To save time, I peeled and cubed the sweet potatoes, boiled them for 8 minutes, then drained. I also added 1 cup pineapple instead of 1/2 cup. I, too, used a 9x9" baking dish, as others suggested (perfect size!). My recipe was ready after 30 minutes of baking. Thanks so much for the recipe!

this is fantastic!! i would give it 10 stars if i could as would EVERYONE at thanksgiving dinner where i brought this as my contribution. as usual i changed something--topping made of ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup flour, 1/3 cup melted margarine, ¾ cup chopped pecans, 6 slices canned pineapple rings, -Beautiful dish. use sweet potatoes, not yams

I made this for my family at Thanksgiving...they all raved! So much better than any I've had before. I even used canned yams and they were still yummy!

I always try a new sweet potato recipe every Thanksgiving until...my husband no longer lets me make any other recipe but this one! It's light not-so-sweet flavor is the perfect compliment to Thanksgiving dinner!

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was a huge hit! I added some chopped peacons for a garnish.

I was slightly hesitant about this wondering how the pairing of pineapple and sweet potato would taste, but thought it turned out excellent! I was tired of seeing recipes for sweet potato casseroles that really packed the calories with sugar, syrup, marshmallows, etc. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet and I wanted something that would bring out that flavor while staying healthy since this is one of the best veggies for you! This recipe did it for me. I can't wait to make for my family on Thanksgiving! This could even pass as a dessert!
