This was a wonderful recipe. Just perfect. As steffi said, sweet - but not too sweet. Just like a sweet potato casserole should be! This was the very first time I made a sweet potato casserole and our company loved it! Thank you for posting. Will definately make again! Note: I actually forgot to grease my casserole dish, but it didn't really stick to the sides at all.
This recipe is so similar to my own sweet potato casserole. I used your recipe for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner this holiday season. I usually only use one egg, but I did like the added body the extra one in this recipe gave the casserole. I also usually add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the potatoes, and sometimes a little pineapple tidbits, chopped walnuts and chopped bits of cherries. But never forget the marshmellows on top! Great recipe, MizzNezz!
I made it cholesterol and fat free by using 4 oz of egg substitute and Smuckers Baking Healthy instead of the butter. I also added some canned pineapple pieces. Yummy!
