I have been making this recipe for several years now and everybody loves it! This year I'm going to double it and freeze a batch for later.

I have never liked sweet potatoes of any kind.At holiday gatherings I would try peoples sweet potato casserole to be polite,never cared for any of them.This past Thanksgiving I made this recipe and was amazed by the smell ,I had to try it.Not only did my family enjoy it but more importantly I loved it.So here it is Christmas Day and after my second casserole, I am compelled to write this review so that the world will know how truly amazing this sweet potato casserole is. I will make this for many years to come

We made 5 of these and popped them in the freezer, to be taken out and baked later, just before Thanksgiving. It froze well for turkey day and I can't wait to pull it out for Christmas.

I doubled the recipe and cooked for a church social and my family and we all loved it. I will definitely use this one for my sweet potato casserole recipe from now on.
