I usually pair this sweet side dish with meatloaf and baked potatoes...a real comfort meal (especially since all three bake simultaneously!).

I found this recipe on the internet several years ago and have made it many times since. I make it exactly as posted. I have also used butternut squash. It is very good with baked ham or turkey at your holiday meals. Thank you for posting this keeper recipe!
