This is an excellent dish. Instead of grating the sweet potatoes I thinly sliced them because I don't like things so mashed. I used So Delicious plain coconut milk (dairy and dairy substitute aisle) instead of the dessicated coconut. I am making it again tonight and will add extra jalapeno. People seem to be saying that theirs turned out very sweet, and I assume that it's because they are using sweetened coconut. Mine was not so sweet (which I was happy about). Will be making this every Shabbat instead of kugel.

This was great. Weird to us, but enjoyed all the same. I used a can of sweet potatoes instead of fresh. I chopped the chunks up into smaller pieces. But not too small as I didn't want it to become mush. It was nice to have the little pieces of sweet potato here and there. I will make this again for sure!

I made half of the recipe. I didn't have any jalapeno peppers so unfortunately had to leave that out. I made mine lower fat by using Egg Beaters instead of whole eggs; reduced fat sour cream; and my coconut was also reduced fat. This brought the fat down to 8 grams per serving as a side dish. I calculated my 1/2 recipe as 4 servings. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow!

This makes a lovely side dish. It was a wonderful addition to the chicken I cooked. I enjoyed the many different textures and flavours in this dish. It is very flavourful and filling. Thank you for sharing.

Excellent! Liked the jalapeno/coconut/sweet potato combination. Served as a vegetarian main dish meal. I tried out my new mandolin on this recipe, slicing a medium/large sweet potatoe (about 19 ounces) on a 3 mm setting. Maybe because I was trying out my mandolin for the first time, prep time took me more like 1 hour. Instead of sour cream I used low fat yogurt and used sweetened desiccated coconut because that's what I had on hand, otherwise no changes on the ingredients. I baked at 350 for 1 hour, and it was perfectly set! BF liked this too, thanks very much and good luck!

Sweet is definately the word for this dish, even with the onion, pepper and garlic in it. We ate it hot as a side dish tonight and found it quite tasty. I want to try it cold tomorrow as an afternoon snack.
