"This is by far the best sweet potato casserole I have ever had/made. Even people that hate sweet potato casserole enjoyed this! I doubled it and it was a good thing because people had several servings. The topping is amazing! This is officially my go-to recipe."

"This is the best sweet potato recipe ever. Much better than cinnamon sweet potato's. My sister insisted she hates sweet potato's and finally tried these and ate half the dish. I am asked to make two of these next year for Thanksgiving."
