Whenever we get together as a family for major holidays, my kids, nieces and nephews literally beg me to make this dish again. It goes together in minutes with canned sweet potatoes, which is ideal for the busy holiday season. —Sue Miller, Mars, Pennsylvania

"I used a 40 oz. can of sweet potatoes and 1/3 cup of sugar in the potato mixture. Will probably go down to 1/4 cup next time. So good!"

"The canned sweet potatoes are so much easier than peeling, dicing and boiling sweet potatoes! Left off the topping but my family still loved it. Will definitely make it again."

"This is an excellent recipe, one that I have shared many times. I have also added a small can of crushed pineapple (drained) to the potatoes for some added flavor. On occasion, I also add some chopped pecans to the topping."

"Excellent recipe! However, I omitted the butter crackers in the topping due to family preferences. It was a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner. I will definitely keep this in my recipe files."

"This is a very tasty dish. I think it is quite sweet. Next time I would cut back on the sugar. I used fresh sweet potatoes and cut them up and boiled them. Then followed the recipe. It was wonderful for Thanksgiving dinner. Will make it again."
