"I'v been making this a few years now & it is now officially been added as a family tradition. The first year, my cousin was helping putting away leftovers & hid it in the back so no one else would take any home & there would be more for her! It really is that good too!"

"This dish is a Thanksgiving tradition for my family. My children and husband absolutely love it! They look forward to the holiday season every year when mom will make the sweet potato dish! I make about 3 of them, one to take to in-laws, my parents, and one to have at home."
