    Can this recipe be put into muffin tin?

    I can't imagine anyone not loving this recipe! My mom has a recipe similar to this, but she was coming to my house for Thanksgiving and forgot her recipe! So, this one looked similar to what hers is like and I made it--I got rave reviews from everyone in the family! It was the first dish to disappear. It actually made me feel kind of bad to get such compliments on a dish that my mom has been making for years...I guess this is just a better recipe...I'm sure not telling Mom, though. Thanks so much!

    Worked perfectly! I only used 2/3 cup sugar and half the butter it called for in the recipe and it was plenty sweet for our tastes. For the topping, I used marshmellows topped with brown sugar. The marshmellows carmalized with the brown sugar for a yummy topping. Plus, I wanted to cut down on the amount of butter, sugar that the recipe needed. Thanks!

    I thought I should review this recipe also since it is a copy of Cristin's Sweet Potatoe Casserole. I used low-fat evaporated milk, light butter, egg beaters and Splenda to keep the calories down. This recipe called for chopped pecans on the top which I left out do to calories. Thanks for such a great recipe.

    Definitely a family favorite! I personally don't like marshmallows with my sweet potatoes so I was very happy to come across this recipe. I do tweak mine a little bit. I make it with whole sweet potatoes, boil for about 10-15 min and cut into cubes. Then I double the topping so it is a good layer. Yum! Thank you!

    This is awesome! THanks so much for sharing! Our whole family doesn't like pecans.... so I substituted them with oatmeal... was worried if it would be as good as the original - but no worries!!! Was really good for those of us who dislike pecans! Also used brown sugar instead of white - cut back a little on the sugar and added some pure maple syrup... YUMMMY! Will definitely make again!

    This recipe was awesome!! I used brown sugar with the potatoes instead of white, added 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows in the mix and put 1/2 bag on top of the topping. It was so delicious. This is a new family favorite!

    This recipe is to die for! I made it for Thanksgiving instead of my usual marshmallow topped ones and now I don't think I will ever make the marshmallow ones again. I did substitute orange flavoring for the vanilla. Mmm...Mmm...Good! Thanks for sharing!
