Reviews forSweet Potato Casserole with Pecans
"Did not like at all; especially the egg. Definitely will not fix this again. Only made it due to the high rating. Won't make that mistake again, either."
"I decided to try something different other than just plain sweet potatoes for Christmas dinner, I used 2.5 pounds of whole sweet potatoes, microwaved until done and then scooped them out of their skins, I used a 2 qt. casserole dish and cut the recipe in half. It was a fabulous dish, very tasty, it will now always be on the holiday table. Thanks for sharing!"
"We liked the topping and the ease of making the whole thing, but it was too "eggy" for our tastebuds. I probably won't make it again."
"I have made this for years, but I always oven roast whole sweet potatoes the day before then slip them out of Thier skins and continue with the recipe, I also add orange zest and juice of an orange or two, lovely great dish."
"Makes an excellent dish! Not wanting the burned marshmallow version of sweet potato casserole, this recipe provided the nice crunchy texture of a cookie-like topping. Followed directions exactly but adjusted ratios for one 30oz can of potatoes. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home I appreciate classic recipes that are easy to prepare."
"Yes, it does call for 8 eggs. My family loved it. Will make again!"
"Does this recipe really call for 8 eggs? That seem like a lot. Making this soon and don't want to mess it up. Thanks"
