Reviews for Sweet Potato Casserole
"This tasted just like the sweet potato casserole I grew up with. The only difference was a change to the topping. The coconut added a different flavor than what I was used to but it was a great change."
"I never make turkey or ham without making this recipe. All of my family requests it. My husband eats it with the entree and he also eats a portion for dessert! Delicious with Walnuts, or pecans and with or without coconut. I sometimes do half pan coconut, half pan without coconut."
"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."
"Hi.What can I use in place of coconut?"
"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."
"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."
"Terrific Thanksgiving recipe! What a crowd pleaser!!!"
"awesome recipe been making this 3 or 4 yrs now people that generally don,t eat sweet potatoes actually enjoy this for some reason"
