This Is So Yummy! I got rave reviews from the family for this Sunday dinner dish! I substituted Sweet Potatoes Patties for the canned yams My 85 year old father wouldn't let me out of his house with them. He's hording the left over for him south. Thats saying something as he grew up on a farm where you eat yams for just about every meal! Thanks for the recipe! I'll Have to make this recipe again!
