    I added 1 cup of dark brown sugar on top of the yams before covering with marshmallows. Came out great except I would not use salt or pepper at all next time and use unsalted butter. The end result was to salty tasting with a hint of pepper. It was good but not what I was aiming for.

    Used evaporated milk and added a hint of cinnamon. Omitted the pepper and just added salt while boiling. Delish!

    Just made this for Thanksgiving. PERFECT recipe! my family ate more of this casserole than they did mashed potatoes - AND THAT NEVER happens! I used fresh ground nutmeg. Also I threw a little sprinkle of brown sugar on top - but it didnt need it.

    I just made this recipe for Christmas dinner & received rave reviews! I did sprinkle a little brown sugar on top, before I added the marshmallows. The roasted marshmallows give the casserole such a nice crunch & texture - delicious!! I will definitely be making this again! Thank Martha!

    Yum!! I swapped out the nutmeg for cinnamon and added 1/3 cup of brown sugar. Also, like some people mentioned, 8 potatoes might be an awful lot for three pounds!!! In any case, the casserole was delish! Thank you Martha!

    My family enjoyed this recipe on Thanksgiving. I usually make a much sweeter recipe with nuts etc., but this was extremely simple and surprisingly good!

    I've been making this recipe for years, however, on occasion, I add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. I always add 1/4 cup brown sugar as well. They have been my sons favourite since he was 3 years old and he still asks for my sweet potatoes at every family dinner and he's 40. They really are amazing.

    My mom's secret has always been to add a dash of cooking sherry and very finely diced apples to her potatoes. They are to die for and every time I make them, people are trying to dissect the wonderful flavor and taste sensation.
