I have no idea where I found this recipe, but I'm adding to our Thanksgiving menu this year.

This recipe is simply outstanding! This is similar to the recipe #80593 that my family has been making for as long as I can remember but we all decided we like this one better! What really *makes* this recipe is the spices in the topping. I made exactly to the recipe except that instead of boiling the sweet potatoes, I cut them into about 3/4-inch chunks, drizzled on a tiny bit of olive oil, and roasted them at 400 deg. F for 45 minutes. Made this for a Thanksgiving potluck and my family requested that I make it again Thursday for T-giving day. I'm also printing out a copy for someone else that was at the potluck. Thanks so much for the recipe bayou-mimi!
