Reviews for Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans
"Makes an excellent dish! Not wanting the burned marshmallow version of sweet potato casserole, this recipe provided the nice crunchy texture of a cookie-like topping. Followed directions exactly but adjusted ratios for one 30oz can of potatoes. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home I appreciate classic recipes that are easy to prepare."
"Made this for Thanksgiving this year and absolutely loved it. I have never been a fan of my Mom's sweet potatoes with marshmallows and pecans on top (sorry Mom) but I could eat this year round. I love the topping on this casserole. Thanks for sharing!"
