Reviews forMakeover Crunchy Sweet Potato Casserole
"This was really good. I omitted the lemon extract since I didn't have it and increased the vanilla to 2 t. I also added some cinnamon to the topping."
"I know this is a lightened up recipe, but it really seemed to be missing something. It almost seemed like it was just mashed sweet potatoes with no flavoring and a little bit of pecans on top."
"Good warm and cold. Used tub margarine instead of the butter; used lemon juice instead of the extract; mashed my sweet potato mixture in my Vitamix. My 14 month old liked it too."
"very good. quite tasty."
"I like to make this at Thanksgiving. It's so much better than sweet potatoes from a can. My family really enjoys it."
