I haven't tried this recipe yet but being from Sweet Potato Country, I can spot a good sweet potato recipe. It's different and looks delicious so I will use it and thought it is worth posting. It makes a 9x13 dish which is a good amount for a nice crowd. Plus, it sounds attractive and easy to put together. CHEERS !!!
