"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!"

"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."

"Made this for Thanksgiving this year and absolutely loved it. I have never been a fan of my Mom's sweet potatoes with marshmallows and pecans on top (sorry Mom) but I could eat this year round. I love the topping on this casserole. Thanks for sharing!"
