My fave way to make sweet potatoes. Always requested to bring for Turkey day meals. The topping puts these above the rest!

When I made this recipe for Thanksgiving, I forgot the half and half, but it was still a delicious dish that received several compliments. This is definitely a five-star recipe, if it still tastes great without a key ingredient. The unintentional lower fat content was a plus! Thank you for sharing!
