    What is your best sweet potatoe recipe for Thanksgiving?

    I took a poll at my weekly Bible study and most the women said that sweet potatoes with marshmellows on top is the recipe that they look forward to the most.

    So what is your recipe?

    Sorry, but I really don't like canned sweet potatoes or marshmallows.
    I cook fresh sweet potatoes, then mash them with a little milk, honey and cinnamon. They are good that way but sometimes I put the mashed taters in a baking dish and top with with little brown sugar, chopped nuts and a dash of cinnamon and bake for awhile. Or you can put chunks of raw sweet potato in a baking dish and pour a can of juice pack crushed pineapple over it and bake. But I think my favorite way to eat sweet potatoes is baked like a regular potato and yes I have served them that way for Thanksgiving.

    I love just plain baked sweet potatoes myself.
    Every year I make the marshmallow variety out of fresh sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving.
    One year I made the pecan type and the adults liked it but the kids did not.
    So I just make the usual.

    I'm going to do this one this year. Any time I can free up oven space by cooking in the crockpot, I'm game!!!
