MY REVIEW

"My family loves this recipe. I actually make 2 versions of this every year for our Thanksgiving feast. I make one that is diabetic friendly leaving out the sugars and stirring in about a 1/2 cup of sour cream to the potatoes and leaving out the sugar on the topping. I also make a "regular" one but omit the white sugar and only use the quantity of brown sugar. It has always been sweet enough for my crew. I also make this occasionally throughout the year for something different to jazz up dinner."

"We love this recipe! I use pecans instead of walnuts for the cornflake "crunch" . I make this as a side for Thanksgiving, but why limit to once a year??!!"

"This recipe is so delicious. You have to taste it to believe just how good it is. I make it for the holidays. It tastes great reheated too. The topping is so yummy, crunchy and sweet. Sometimes I cut the sugar down a little and it is still sweet enough."

"Fantastic recipe, I made this for a thanksgiving potluck. I was in Mexico and I didn't have nutmeg so I put cinnamon and ginger to spice it up. There wasn't any left at the end of the evening and I had requests for the recipe. Other sweet potato recipes went home with their owners. This will be a traditional dish each year."
