Crispy Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole

"This is very good, not too sweet; a nice alternative to the marshmallow topped version. I got the recipe from Cooking Light Magazine and it is one I will be fixing for this Thanksgiving."

    This was amazing. Delicious recipe, tried it the other night for the first time. I only made one tweak...I added a couple TBS of sugar to the potato mixture to sweeten it up just a touch. Thank you for posting this. I will be making it again and again.

    I made this to take along to a a Thanksgiving dinner. This is a very forgiving recipe. I only used 2 lbs of sweet potato, not 5 but I forgot and followed the recipe, including the topping, for 5 lbs - no worries, it was sweet but not icky sweet like the stuff with marshmallo topping. Then, my son tipped the casserole on the way to dinner - no worries, I just mixed-in the topping and it tasted fine. I'm sure it would have been even better without all the mistakes :).

    Oh, my! This was wonderful. I'm not a big fan of sweet potato casserole, mostly because I don't care for the marshmallow topping on most, but I'll make this recipe again and again. This topping was awesome and the potatoes light and fluffy. Thanks for sharing this scrumptious recipe.

    This was a big hit for my family- even the toddler wanted more. I halved the recipe and it was a perfect fit in my 8X8 casserole dish.
