"When I was visiting my husband's family in North Carolina, I sampled this wonderful Southern specialty," recounts Marilyn Hallman of Mt. Prospect, Illinois. A sugary pecan topping sweetened the comforting creation spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.

    I first tried this recipe when in appeared in Quick Cooking and it has been in our family Thanksgiving dinner each year since. I just multiply the ingredients to make 6 servings. No need to alter any ingredients with this. Absolutely wonderful!

    I didn't have any sweet potatoes on hand and was impatient to try this so I used my frozen banana squash instead. It was great, can't wait to try it with sweet potatoes or yams.
