Made this for our 1st Thanksgiving (cooking by myself) and it was a GREAT success! Highly recommend it :)

I wanted to contribute to the Thanksgiving feast without having to vie for oven space/time. This recipe was perfect! Even the non-sweet potato eaters liked it! I left the yams in chunks after peeling, omitted the coconut. I also added about 3 cups of mini marshmallows on top about 10 minutes before serving; they don't brown, but melt in for that gooey sweet treat. Crockpot cooking times can vary; mine took only about 3 hours on LOW.

We started using this recipe off this site several years ago but I am just now getting aroudn to reviwing it. It is a family favorite - we make it every year without fail and it is always gobbled up!

I *loved* this Sweet Potato dish...which is unusual in the fact that up until now I have *never* liked a Sweet Potato dish that I've ever tried. However my Dad really loves them and unfortunately Mom's been very busy the last 3 years to make it. SOooo for Thanksgiving I decided to surprise Dad and make it for him. Though this recipe was involved in the hours it took to cook (I used the low setting for 10 hours) over night, it was quite simple in prep time and ingredients which drew me too it! Long story short--this dish was the "hit" of the Thanksgiving! Everyone loved it and my Dad was so happy he insisted on keeping the small amount of leftovers.
Now for Christmas this year Mom's requested I make my Sweet Potato Dish again...but a double batch this time so Dad has lots more to keep for later!
