This is a great recipe. I know this sounds odd, but we made it for brunch and had it (small portions) with some fresh fruit and scrambled eggs. It is very filling, but has a relatively modest amount of added fat or sugar (although it still has that salty-sweet thing going with the sweet potatoes and ham). I didn't have Tabasco sauce, but I did have some Busha Browne's Pepper Sherry that I substituted. I need to remember to press the ham mixture more firmly into the pie plate, it did fall apart quite a bit during serving, but I think it was my error. Next time I roast sweet potatoes, I'm making extra so that we can have this delicious pie! Thank you for posting this, it was a huge hit.

This was such a delicious recipe! We didn't have Italian bread crumbs so we used a cup of Rice Crispies instead and they worked just fine...we also left out the hot sauce as a personal preference. Also, we just mashed 3 sweet potatoes and that was enough to make two pies....we are so glad we made extra because now we have leftovers! We will definitely be making this one again.

The kids couldn't agree if they liked it, but they prefer mac'n'cheese so what do they know. I really liked it and ended up eating half myself! (The kids gave me their plates! I substituted mustard for the hot sauce and used soy milk and gluten free breadcrumbs, but I think it probably tasted similar to the original! Yum. Mary

Wow - this dish has a complex flavor that I really enjoyed. I substituted yams for sweet potatoes and left out the tabasco sauce. I also used leftover ham that I tore into small pieces. Thank you so much for the recipe! I'll be making this again.

We had this for supper and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it would make a great brunch entree as well. Tastes delicious and comforting, Lorac.
