    very different

    Elaine Wasinger from LARAMIE, WY

    I made this for Easter & my husband did not care for it hot. He tried it cold the next morning & said it was much better tastin. I think it is a good way to prepare sweet potatoes in place of candied. Much less fat & sugar

    Make Sweet Potato Casserole!

    julie madawi from CLERMONT, FL

    This recipe is identical to one I've been making for years for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I microwave the butter and brown sugar (in equal amounts), mix in the rest of the ingredients, then fold in mini marshmallows or just have them as topping. You can either "cook" it in the microwave or bake it in the oven. I also like to add pecans. Try this variation, you'll love it!
