I made this 1/17/2019. I'd used 40-oz. can sweet potatoes (Bruce's yams) and 1-1/4 cups of crushed butter-flavored crackers! I'd omitted the salt by mistake! This dish was brought to our Friday afternoon potluck for a birthday party celebration! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Really good. Almost like a dessert. I think next time I will try a bit less sugar and a bit less butter and see if it stays as wonderful. I am taking it for Thanksgiving dinner.

I used a 40 oz. can of sweet potatoes and 1/3 cup of sugar in the potato mixture. Will probably go down to 1/4 cup next time. So good!

The canned sweet potatoes are so much easier than peeling, dicing and boiling sweet potatoes! Left off the topping but my family still loved it. Will definitely make it again.

This is an excellent recipe, one that I have shared many times. I have also added a small can of crushed pineapple (drained) to the potatoes for some added flavor. On occasion, I also add some chopped pecans to the topping.

Excellent recipe! However, I omitted the butter crackers in the topping due to family preferences. It was a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner. I will definitely keep this in my recipe files.
