This recipe is a hand-me-down from my mother. My dad used to plant a lot of sweet potatoes, so Mother became quite creative in preparing them. It's our annual holiday dish with turkey and trimmings, but when I have a yen for something sweet, I reach into my file for this recipe. -Aline Fazzio, Houman, Louisiana

"I've been looking for this recipe for years. I had one similar and lost it. The only exception is mine used can milk, all the rest is the same. You can't go wrong with Aline's Louisiana's Sweet Potato Recipe. Anyone that doesn't like Yams or Sweet Potatos, but, likes Pumkin Pie will really love this Casserole.
