I have been making this dish for two years. I use splenda instead of the white sugar and no one even knows. I used to dislike sweet potatoes and now look forward to being able to make this dish. My hubby and I have the left overs for breakfast. Could this be put in a pie shell as a pie, sure seems so! Delish!
We just got done with our meal and we loved this way of making sweet potatoes. I totally forgot the milk but didn't realize that until we were done eating it and they were great. Next time I'll put the milk in just to see which way we like it. Thanks!
One of the guests only half jokingly suggested I serve these with ice cream. I doubled the recipe and people inhaled these.. warning - they are terribly sweet and desert like, which may be why they are just so damn good. I baked the potatoes the night before, in truth you can make the entire thing the night before and just bake for the 30mins on d-day.
Karen, I was so glad to see this recipe Saturday morning when I started looking for a sweet potato dish. One of the kids requested a recipe like Nee used to make and I couldn't find hers. This was the closest one I found and got a LOAD of compliments on it. I mixed mine up with the mixer to make them smooth. The topping was divine and JUST RIGHT for the sweet potatoes. My family thanks you for their new favorite recipe.
This was soooooo yummy. I only used 1/2 the white sugar in the potatoes and it was perfectly sweet. The topping was delicious! I only used half the sugar in that too!
