"I used half evaporated milk and half water because I didn't have 2%. Also, since I only had 2 sweet potatoes, I cut everything down to a 1/3 to make it enough for 2."

"I make this recipe during the course of the year. Instead of topping with marshmallows, I use marshmallow creme & spread on top of the casserole."
