I have been making this recipe for 25 years and THERE IS A MISTAKE in the # of eggs. There should only be 3 eggs. Also, I melt the butter for the topping to mix in the brown sugar and nuts better. I cook fresh sweet potatoes 3-4 lbs. and the more topping the better. Try again with the correct # of eggs and it will be great.

for cilotspeich-under the picture there are 5 small tan boxes. The last box on the right will say print. That will take you to the "print" page. You can choose whether to have picture, etc on your printed page. Click that print button and it will take you to your own printer page (finally, lol). press print there and it will finally print.

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.

Plan to make this for Thanksgiving. Does anyone know if I can prepare and refrigerate this the day before, then pop it in the oven on Thanksgiving morning? Thank's for sharing this recipe.

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.

Very easy & fast to make. We had for Thanksgiving & those who tried it, loved it & took seconds. Some would not try it because the are afraid of sweet potatoes! Smells like a desert when it is baking & could pass for one! AWESOME!

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.
