deannebg: How did you know how much sweet potato 2 cans yielded? So, how much pumpkin - in cups - did you use? Tx.

p.s. I forgot to add that I subbed egg beaters for the eggs to lower the fat.

I took this recipe and exchanged canned pumpkin for the sweet potatoes. It was delish. My family raved. I plan to use it for a healthier choice this Thanksgiving.
