This is really outstanding. I have made it multiple times and have modified it to be slightly less rich. I add an extra sweet potato (5 total), cut the butter to 5 T., use just 1 T. of vanilla, add an extra egg, and omit the 1 c. of pecans from the dish (I still use the 1/4 c. pecans on top). It is great as written, but it is still really rich & flavorful with the cutbacks.
The best sweet potatoes I have ever tasted. Even better than my mother's. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. I will be making this for MANY years to come.
If you leave out the eggs there's no reason to put this back in the oven. Beat the potatoes while they're hot with the other ingredients and take the dish straight to the table. I used milk rather than cream, as it was what I had on hand. The maple flavor really comes through!
fantastic!! Super sweet though. I recommend a little less brown sugar and vanilla extract (they are sweet potatoes after all) Thank you!!
Delicious! Substitutions were made, however. Walnuts for pecans, milk for cream, and honey + a splash of molasses for maple syrup. I imagine pecans and maple syrup would have made this to die for. Oh, and I cut down the total sugar + honey to 2/3 cup, but it still came out nice and sweet.
I made this with my traditional Thanksgiving dinner last year. This week I needed some easy to prepare comfort food and went straight for this recipe. Thank you for posting it!
I have been looking for a awesome sweet potato casserole recipe and I have now found it. I think it is the maple syrup that makes this crazy good! I did not make any changes to this recipe - it does not need any altering in my opinion! I fixed this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it and begged me to bring it again for Christmas.
Big Hit! Even those who don't normally eat sweet potatoes can't stop talking about them.
