    This is my husband's must have Thanksgiving side dish. I double the recipe and use 50% sweet potatoes and 50% yams. The combination is wonderful! Be sure to double the topping. I also top it with fresh whipped cream.

    I made this last Thanksgiving, but forgot to review it. It was so good, family loved it and will be making it again this year.

    YUM! I decided to switch up our holiday sweet potatoes and tried this. It was SO good! It went great with our turkey! I added a bit more topping for some extra crunch. Perfect!

    Great recipe, and so easy! I wanted a change from candied yams this Thanksgiving, and this was a hit! I'll definitely be making this again!

    This has been our family's favorite recipe for years. My 10 year old just reminded me not to forget it for Thanksgiving!

    This is a great recipe for fall, including at the Thanksgiving table. The topping makes it special. It is so tasty!
