This dish is beyond redemption -- it's really more like a dessert than a side dish. But, boy, is it good ... once a year at Thanksgiving, it's irresistible.

Used yams. Made the topping with less butter to create a crumb topping instead and left out the nuts. I riced the yams for a fluffier texture which everyone loved. It was the favorite at Thanksgiving. Just a wonderful foundation recipe that was easily adjusted for family tastes.
