Notes

TV Tidbit: Here's one of my funniest stories! When we were taking photos of this recipe, we had a new kitchen assistant helping out. He didn’t speak much English and, when he overheard my director and producer say, "We’ll shoot Mr. Food tomorrow morning," he thought they were plotting my demise! When it was all cleared up, we all had a big laugh!

@Brensue53, Absolutely! Please let us know how it turns out! --Editors of RecipeLion

can you use fresh yams instead of canned???

I have made this recipe for years (without the coconut) and it has become an Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas "must have" with our extended family get-to-gethers or parties! Every year they tell me it is the best it has ever been! Everyone new always wants the recipe. It is so easy it is almost fool-proof.

@grannymi 9550493 - If you want to cut down on the sugar in this recipe, you can use a sugar substitute suitable for baking, or you can try eliminating the sugar altogether. Hope this helps! - RecipeLion Editors

the sweet potato casserole sounds good, but toooo much sugar
