"This was great! Only difference I did was add just a sprinkle of sea salt to the mashed sweet potatoes. Then to the topping added just a small touch of maple syrup. Then topped the topping with corn flake crumbs."

"This is an easy, delicious recipe that I've been using for years - with the exception of coconut. It still tastes great without it."

"This has been a family holiday favorite for over 20 years. I leave out the coconut because not everyone in my family likes it. Otherwise it is delicious."

"I added some cinnamon to the casserole and left the topping off (my family prefers sweet potato casserole without a topping)."

"This recipe has been a favorite with my family for over 20 years! (As a matter of fact, I still use the original recipe card which I clipped from Country in 1991!) I do cut back a bit on the amount of sugar in the sweet potato mixture, since the delicious topping adds plenty of sweetness."

"Phenominal I make a sweet potato casserole every year. Not sure if this is the same recipe, but it has the same ingredients. I also use less sugar, both in and on top of this."

"My whole family loves this version of sweet potato casserole. No marshmallows for us please. We don't like it supper sweet; sweet potatoes have their own natural sweetness (that's why they are "sweet" potatoes) so we generally don't add that much sugar, if any. This will definitely have a place on the Thanksgiving table!"
