Very good sweet potatoes. I used two 29oz cans of yams just drained them and mashed with the other ingredients. I made this dish the day before and refrigerated it, put the topping mixture in a ziploc bag and sprinkled over top just before baking. I did cook an additional 20 minute, but loved the time saving of getting it all ready and popping in the oven. My kids will not eat sweet potatoes but the older members of the family thought these were the best they had ever tasted.


My mother-in-law loved these. I made the night before and then heated the next day. Very quick and easy.


This was amazing. The potatoes were creamy and sweet. It turned out better than I actually thought it old recipe has been replaced. Thanks for the post.
