FLAVOR GALORE!!! This is a popular dish in my area and it is also my Aunt Catherine's recipe. The dish always comes back empty from a potluck! The crunchy goodness on top is what makes this casserole go over well. A great dish to have any time of the year.
- Note for quick method of cooking sweet potatoes -- I put the sweet potatoes in a baking dish and add 1/4 cup of water. Put a lid on and microwave for approximately 20 minutes. After they have cooled, peel and mash.
- Mix all 8 ingredients for sweet potato mixture. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes and see below for crunchy topping.
- Mix all 4 ingredients for topping and sprinkle over potatoes. Bake for an additional 8 minutes and remove from oven.
