This recipe has grown into one of my favorite side dishes; and I started out not even liking sweet potatoes! This has changed my opinion forever! Adapted from a Honey Baked Ham recipe I picked up years ago.

No one even noticed that it had sweet potato! LOL! I got extra vitamins in without them even knowing. I used regular cheddar and an italian parmesan blend cheese on top - parmesan, romano, and some others. Yummy dish!! Thank you for sharing!!
