This was great! I made this for Thanksgiving. I used fresh sweet potatoes and quadrupled the recipe and it was a hit. I did add in some vanilla extract as well and a pinch of nutmeg. This was easy and a success for my first hosted Thanksgiving dinner!
My daughter made this for Thanksgiving, and we loved it! She baked 2.5 lbs. sweet potatoes, and only used marshmallows on top. Thanks for such an easy and good recipe.
I gave this recipe 5 stars! This recipe was so easy and tasted just good as using fresh cooked sweet potatoes. When I made this recipe I only had one each 15oz and 12oz cans. So I cut down on the other ingredients a bit. Also I used Splenda brown sugar. I didn't use near as many marshmallows as directed. Overall this was so good and I will make this recipe again for sure! Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)
Thank goodness I found this again! I've started doing a lot of the dishes for my family holiday gatherings (18 people) and this was a HUGE hit on Thanksgiving! I'll be making it again for Christmas dinner. My aunt usually makes it and uses nuts in hers, but they enjoyed it more without the nuts...yay! Thanks!
Easy and good!! My family loved this recipe. I used a larger baking dish. This is going into my recipe files. Thanks for sharing!!
I just made this The Turkey Feast!!! So Good! I bought about 4lbs of uncooked yams at the store and boiled them myself at home. So it might've turned out less sweet, but the marshmallows added enough sweetness. It still turned out tasty, maybe better w/o the preservatives from cans. Thanks for the post!!! Loved and Saved.
This has become our holiday yam recipe over the past few years! It's perfect for us. Thank you!
This was so very yummy & set up nicely! I also used a 29oz can (in syrup) as that's all I had on hand & I am the only one who likes sweet potatoes in my family. The other chgs I made to suit my taste: I cut the sugar in 1/2 (& prob could've cut it even more since it was a little sweet still), I used egg substitute to replace the egg (to lighten it a bit on calories), & I sort-of chopped the potatoes instead of mashing them. Otherwise I made it just as written and I was pleased with the result. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
This is just like a recipe I have made. I usually add a can of apricots (juice drained)in one of the layers and also add walnuts. My family expects this dish every Thanksgiving!
Thank you for posting this recipe! I normally make a sweet potato souflee from scratch with nuts but this was a quick and easy alternative. I added a lil extra sugar and cinnamon for personal taste. It came out perfectly and tasted awesome! Definitely a keeper.
