I can't imagine anyone not loving this recipe! My mom has a recipe similar to this, but she was coming to my house for Thanksgiving and forgot her recipe! So, this one looked similar to what hers is like and I made it--I got rave reviews from everyone in the family! It was the first dish to disappear. It actually made me feel kind of bad to get such compliments on a dish that my mom has been making for years...I guess this is just a better recipe...I'm sure not telling Mom, though. Thanks so much!
OMG, I made this for Christmas Eve dinner at in-laws house and got rave reviews. I made this using a 40 oz can of yams without juice and it was perfect. Soooo good that I made it again for my Christmas Dinner. You are so right, it could be a dessert. I made this recipe exactly the same (exception of 40 oz can of yams) and at last minute I broiled some mini marshmello's on top. I know, it's typical but was an added bonus. Thanks Jamia, I will make this again and again.
Worked perfectly! I only used 2/3 cup sugar and half the butter it called for in the recipe and it was plenty sweet for our tastes. For the topping, I used marshmellows topped with brown sugar. The marshmellows carmalized with the brown sugar for a yummy topping. Plus, I wanted to cut down on the amount of butter, sugar that the recipe needed. Thanks!
