Very good sweet potatoes. I used two 29oz cans of yams just drained them and mashed with the other ingredients. I made this dish the day before and refrigerated it, put the topping mixture in a ziploc bag and sprinkled over top just before baking. I did cook an additional 20 minute, but loved the time saving of getting it all ready and popping in the oven. My kids will not eat sweet potatoes but the older members of the family thought these were the best they had ever tasted.

These were just ok to me. Nothing special about them. The topping is good though. Im still searching for a really good sweet potato recipe.

My mother-in-law loved these. I made the night before and then heated the next day. Very quick and easy.

This was amazing. The potatoes were creamy and sweet. It turned out better than I actually thought it would....my old recipe has been replaced. Thanks for the post.

I really liked this recipe. I added cinnamon and allspice to it. Next time I will use all brown sugar and more spices. My family really enjoyed it. They thought it was going to be for desert, so when they found out it was a sidedish, they were excited that they got to eat it with their dinner. I served it with baked pork chops 1 from this site.

Wow! Is all I can say! I followed the directions as stated but also added some cinnamon and this was awesome! It is the new staple for my Thanksgiving meal! :)

This was VERY good. Made this for Thanksgiving and had the ones who don't like sweet potatoes coming back for seconds! I left out the pecans as my husband can't eat them, but the topping still came out awesome. I also added a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon to the potatoes. I got requests already for Christmas. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Outstanding on the first try!! My only change was using fresh sweet potatoes. For the new cooks, I wrapped 6 medium ones in foil and baked them for one hour at 350 degrees. Then, I spooned them out and mashed them. Proceed with remaining recipe. My husband who doesn't eat veggies thought it was great!! Tastes like a souffle. Very fancy.
