Mom loves sweet potatoes and fixed them often in this creamy, comforting casserole. With its nutty topping, this side dish could almost serve as a dessert. It's a yummy treat! —Sandi Pichon, Memphis, Tennessee

"I was hesitant to change my recipe, but I went ahead and tried this one and boy, am I glad I did. These were incredible. Now I'll be making this casserole year round, rather than just for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing your mom's delicious recipe, Sandi. Merry Christmas!"

"I had some left over sweet potatoes that I had baked. I searched TOH and found this recipe. It was very tasty. I did add more pecans, because I love pecans. I am going to double the recipe for Thanksgiving."

"This was a hit at my Thanksgiving! Very easy to make. I prepped it in the morning, and threw it in the oven as soon as the turkey came out."

"This was the second year I have made this for Thanksgiving and again it was a HUGE success. The only thing I do differently is add marshmallows 15 minutes before end of baking time. Everyone loves this dish!"

"Yum!!! I omitted the nuts because of allergies, and it was still delicious. I baked it for about 10 minutes longer than what the recipe calls for, which made the topping crispier n the inside a little firmer. I made 1 dish, n it got gobbled up! I think I'll make 2 next time!"
