I served this with stuffed pork chops and a spinach salad for a dinner party. Everyone raved. I wasn't sure how I would like this, but it was wonderful. A great way to serve sweet potatoes without them being "sweet". I made the mistake of putting the topping on when I first put it in the oven, and it turned out just fine.
