I used three eggs and 1/2 cup sugar, then beat the daylights out of it with a mixer. Made the topping according to recipe. Much to my delight, this turned out like a yam pudding and was delicious! Had thought about cinnamon, but did not use it. It might be good, but this recipe really did not need that. It was a hit at dinner tonight. Thank you!

Tastes like dessert! I have a very similar recipe and it's always a hit, too. This is so easy to make because it uses canned yams. No peeling or steaming. If you make this for Thanksgiving, I suggest you (at least) double it! Thanx for sharing.

This is outstanding. I scaled the recipe down just so I could try it out. I used one 16 oz. can of yams, 1 egg and then I eyeballed everything else. I forgot to add the milk, so I scraped off my topping best I could and then added half and half (because I wanted to use it up before it expired). I do plan on having this again and I may throw alittle pecan in the topping. Thank you Chef Vseward!!!
