peeled, cubed sweet potatoes
coarsely chopped walnuts
This recipe works great even with canned sweet potatoes. Just drain them well, and throw them in the mixing bowl.
There is NO need for additional sugar.
This tastes great! However, one key thing was left out- you have to have room temp egg whites. If that had been in the recipe, it would have saved me a little extra work. Maybe you all know that already though! Some other hints, while we're on the topic of meringue, are to use a metal (not plastic) bowl and make sure everything is clean of oils of any kind. Using an electric mixer really helps as well. Hope that helps out anyone else who is also rather a novice in the kitchen!
Delicious. I added some brown sugar to the layer of walnuts because I was afraid it wasn't going to be sweet enough. I got compliments on this dish at Thanksgiving.
This was INCREDIBLY GOOD 10 Stars. My husband said "Restaurant Quality" I followed the recipe exactly as posted. The only complaint I have is that it is quite a small quantity. I did not bake it in a 9X9 it was going to be too little and to flat. Next time I will double up the ingredients. WOW we really loved it!
this is one terrific accompanyment for turkey
Made this for Thanksgiving this year, and got lots of good reviews :) It was yummy. There was some confusion, however, as to if it was to be served hot or cold... we went the hot route, but by the time all the fixin's were on my plate, and I was ready to eat, the sweet potato was cold. So use an oven, not a hot-plate to keep it warm before eating-time. (It made good left-overs btw :D)
Was a good dish to bring to a Thanksgiving potluck, got a lot of interest. Only thing I might want it a little sweeter.
This was sooooo yummy and pretty. LOVED IT!
