This was so good...not too sweet; the evaporated milk is a wonderful addition. This is a wonderful food for the little ones. My toddler loved it.

Finally something different!

This was so good and went over so well with my family, that I am going to make it again for Thanksgiving and Christmas as a regular side dish. Finally something different to do with my favorite sweet potatos that is easy to fix. YUM YUM!
