    It was flavorful; however, the casserole with the crunchy topping is better.

    It was ok, but I was looking for something special and this just didn't seem to be it. It was good, but not anything special to us.

    I doubled the recipe except for the praline topping, it was perfect! Didn't need anymore than that. The family loved it and said it tasted like a dessert

    i should have followed my first instinct - to bake the sweet potatoes instead of boil them. Boiling took away a lot of the sweet potato flavor, leaving a rather bland mash. Thinking of mixing in some chunky applesauce to give it some flavor but made as is it is quite bland.
