The sauce is the star of this recipe. It really does taste like butterscotch. It is a nice side dish for poultry or ham.

"Very yummy. I threw some marshmallows on top prior to serving and this was a hit."

"This was a hit at my Thanksgiving get-together! I actually prepared the potatoes and sauce the day before. I poured the sauce over the cooled cooked sweet potatoes in the baking casserole and placed it in refrigerator until baking time. The casserole was put in the oven for about 30-40 minutes before eating."

"This was very flavorful. The cinamon gives it a nice flavor. Those in my family that do not like sweet potatoes went back for seconds."
