A big hit at Thanksgiving dinner, Member marymavros

This was a little too sweet for my taste and the texture was a bit too mushy for me (maybe cooking it in a shallower dish would've helped the mushiness a bit). I didn't make any adjustments to the recipe when I made it. But as it was, it was a huge hit with everyone at Thanksgiving dinner, and there were no leftovers. Many of the people that said they weren't a big fan of sweet potatoes said that it was absolutely delicious--and that it tasted like a crust-less sweet potato pie. I think the next time I make this, I'll add a bit less sugar and definitely cut back on the milk. The topping was absolutely perfect--I wouldn't fiddle with that! And I'll double it for sure!
