"I used 3-17oz. cans of sweet potatoes, reduced the butter to 1C. and reduced the brown sugar to 3/4 C. It couldn't have been easier and the family devoured it. Will definitely make it again...." See more"
"This was quick and easy and good. I chop the sweet potatoes (with the skin still on) into 2" thick circles, and then cut the circles in half, before boiling them in an enormous stockpot-- this makes ..." See morethe boiling time really fast. After they are boiled, the skin practically falls off, which saves you the effort of peeling them beforehand. Based on the reviews, I reduced the butter and sugar all the way down to 1/4 cup margarine and 1/2 cup brown sugar. The Thanksgiving guests said it was perfect that way, but no one had a super sweet tooth. Personally, I will try 1/2 cup margarine and maybe 3/4 cup sugar next time as I felt the reduced version was too healthy and not decadent enough. :) Although chunks are good, the potatoes should still be mashed a little bit while you stir them into the sauce. If you have too big chunks the butter/sugar will not penetrate the center of the chunk. Did anyone notice that this recipe is very similar to making rice krispie treats-- except you don't add sugar when making rice krispie treats? ***Update*** I've made this every year for Thanksgiving, and it is always a hit. Definitely go with 1/2 cup salted butter (NOT margarine!) and 3/4 cup brown sugar."
