    *Parsley*'s Note:

    I love this! You can use sweet potatoes, but I prefer yams. No sugar or marshmallows in this. The sweetness comes from a banana. Great with ham or for Thanksgiving or anytime!

      I really enjoyed this recipe when my MIL introduced it to me a few Thanksgiving seasons ago. I love the hint of banana in this dish. It adds the right amount of sweetness to the sweet potatoes (or yams). I will make it for Thanksgiving this year but with modifications since my daughter is allergic to dairy. I will use vegan butter (Earth Balance) and Toffuti sour cream.

      Yum! This was simple and really tasty. Loved the hint of sweetness from the banana. Very creamy and good. Thanks Parsley for a nice side. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.

      Wow! I knew it would be good with sweet potatoes and banana. But you can't taste the sour cream's tang, it just melds into this fluffy orange goodness. Thank you so much for posting, made for ZWT4.
