    JustJanS's Note:

    I've been making this for years, but just decided to share it now. I do the same with pumpkin or mashed potato or a mix of any of the 3. Leftovers of these work well too, though you would need to allow a little extra cooking time to allow them to reheat through. Cooking time includes the approximate time needed to boil the sweet potato.

      Yum! I had some leftover bacon, onion mixture from a gravy so used that to top this. I used cream in lieu sour cream but otherwise made as directed..Little Miss DD demolished this and asked for more and I thoroughly enjoyed it too..simple to do but tastes divine. Thanks Jan!

      This was very good. I then repeated the recipe with the adaptation of leaving out the nutmeg and stirring in a good heaped tablespoon of hot horseradish sauce. This gives it a real zing.
