I made this sidedish to go with Ham for Christmas dinner today. It was delicious! I made it as written except for the fact that I used about 4 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. I think that it turned out fine even with too much potato (if there is such a thing). Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
This dish went to a company Christmas Party where they raved about it. Had to make 10 copies of the recipe. I baked my sweet potatos the previous day and kept them in the refrigerator. It was much easier to peel them and get all the potato out.
Excellent, will be an every holiday dish
Easy and simple recipe to make, delicious too.
Hey laura thanks for bringing back my grandmom's cooking for a little while.This is how i remember it being.I didn't use pecans as nuts aren't popular with the family.As for the margarine i didn't melt it i left it in little peices(kinda like when your making biscuits..) turned out really good.And topped it with marshmellows.YUMMY
I substituted butter, unsweetened almond milk and all purpose gluten free flour. Love love love this recipe
Does anybody know the difference between yams and sweet potatoes? lots of people do not. A yam is not a sweet potato!!!! I wish people would be more specific when writing/posting recipes. I know this is confusing to a lot of people.
This is one of my all time favorites for sweet potatoes-it really is almost a sweet potato/pecan pie without the crust! Definitely for those with a sweet tooth or you can cut back on some of the sugar.
I have made this twice so far and my friends and family really liked it. The only thing I changed was to add marshmallows to the top about 5-7 minutes before removing from oven. Although we liked it, we found it a little too sweet. The next time I will omit the sugar in the sweet potatoes, as there is enough sweetness in the topping and the marshmallows. Thanks for a great recipe!
Family favorite for sure! We split it and make half with the pecan topping and half with marshmallows....yum!
