“This is perfect to serve at your Christmas or Thanksgiving table, and I have done so many times and received rave reviews from all, this has been a long time family favorite and sure to become yours also! For a sweeter taste you may increase the sugar amount in the potato mixture by a few tablespoons or to taste, the sweet potatoes may be baked and the pulp removed up to a day in advance if desired --- two 29-ounce cans sweet potatoes, drained and mashed may be used for this recipe, prep time does not include baking the sweet potatoes.”
