Mom loves sweet potatoes and fixed them often in this creamy, comforting baked sweet potato casserole. With its nutty topping, this side dish could almost serve as a dessert. It's a yummy treat! —Sandi Pichon, Memphis, Tennessee

"I made this for Thanksgiving, but used two 49 oz cans of sweet potatoes (drained). Because the potatoes were already sweet from the syrup I left out the sugar called for in the recipe, and only used a tablespoon of milk. It still turned out well, although next time I won't use the canned potatoes. The topping really makes this dish extra special. As others have said, don't add the pecans until the butter, flour and brown sugar are crumbly. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"Good recipe, however the directions.....

For all you new cooks out there, when you're making the topping, be sure to add the pecans after you've already cut your butter/margarine into the flour/brown sugar mixture. Otherwise, you'll be spending tons of time trying to incorporate the butter around the pecans."

"I have made this for years. If I didn't bring it to Thanksgiving I would be in a lot of trouble! Everyone LOVES it! I cook and mash the potatoes thd night before and refrigerate, then it's a lot less work on the day of dinner ??"

"This is a fantastic side dish! I love the pecan topping - it's luscious! I have sometimes varied the dish by adding 1/2 - 1 cup of well-drained pineapple to the sweet potato mixture. The pineapple is a nice addition and goes well with the sweet potato flavor. This is a perfect recipe for the Thanksgiving table (or any time, really!)."
