It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the versatile root vegetable—the sweet potato. Building on traditional recipes used by my mother and grandmother, I've added maple syrup, brown sugar, dried apricots and more spices to update this holiday casserole. —Keri Scofield Lawson, Fullerton, California

"I've made this for years now, and its a huge hit always. I make it the day before, cover it, and refrigerate it. I take it out, let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, and then I add the pecans and bake it. And yes, you can always put some marshmallows on top the last few minutes if your family insists and your sugar tolerances can handle it. I've also prepared it in a slow cooker when oven space is scarce. Cooked it for 3-4 hours on low."

"Made this for Thanksgiving 2012 and it was a huge hit. Leftovers were great, too! I'm making it again for Christmas Eve dinner with ham instead of turkey."

"Super easy and delicious! I do it in the crockpot when I need to transport it somewhere."

"I tried this and it is just delicious, the carbs were a little to high so I used sugar free maple syrup"
