This tasted just like the sweet potato casserole I grew up with. The only difference was a change to the topping. The coconut added a different flavor than what I was used to but it was a great change.

I never make turkey or ham without making this recipe. All of my family requests it. My husband eats it with the entree and he also eats a portion for dessert! Delicious with Walnuts, or pecans and with or without coconut. I sometimes do half pan coconut, half pan without coconut.

This was great! Only difference I did was add just a sprinkle of sea salt to the mashed sweet potatoes. Then to the topping added just a small touch of maple syrup. Then topped the topping with corn flake crumbs.

This is an easy, delicious recipe that I've been using for years - with the exception of coconut. It still tastes great without it.

Hi.What can I use in place of coconut?

This has been a family holiday favorite for over 20 years. I leave out the coconut because not everyone in my family likes it. Otherwise it is delicious.

I added some cinnamon to the casserole and left the topping off (my family prefers sweet potato casserole without a topping).

This recipe has been a favorite with my family for over 20 years! (As a matter of fact, I still use the original recipe card which I clipped from Country in 1991!) I do cut back a bit on the amount of sugar in the sweet potato mixture, since the delicious topping adds plenty of sweetness.
