As a Southern family, we always have sweet potatoes. My family was tired of the old standby. This was a tremendous hit with my family last Thanksgiving(2010). The bacon and green onions added a great new taste to the recipe. I plan to make this year for Christmas dinner.

Great recipe, especailly for those who aren't crazy about sweet potatoes. My non-sweet potato eaters ate them up and went back for seconds. I used applewood smoked bacon which was delicous!

Very good but could use more green onions and sour cream for taste.

For us vegetarians, try substituting Fakin' Bacon available at many health food stores which carry groceries!

My Aunt. made this dish for Thanksgiving last year. My family does not make the sweet potatos dishes, no one cares for them. But my family of 20 all loved it! We had it at Christmas, and we will be having it also at Easter!

I made this for Thanksgiving 2010- I don't like traditional sweet potato dishes and this was a fabulous alternative! My kids still rave about it and ask for it!

LOVE it! We thought it had just enough smoky bacon and green onion to give it a really nice flavor. A great change up from the "sweet" version of sweet potatoes and really not that much of a nuisance to make when you have the oven going already. We LOVED IT and will make next Thanksgiving too!

There was nothing complicated about this recipe, I recommend it. I tried it once to the letter then changed it for the Thanksgiving table. I excluded the breadcrumbs on the top and added a little bit more sour cream and much more bacon. It was wonderful having a different type of sweet potatoes instead of the very sweet ones we usually serve. The leftovers are even better!

This recipe was the hit at Thanksgiving. And this was a group of good cooks. It is easy, and light--even using real sour cream, butter and bacon. Especially when compared to the usual sweet potatoes with lots of sugar, butter and marshmallows. It makes plenty for a crowd and looks beautiful when portioned as shown in the photo. The portioning happens to also keep the recipe calories and fat within an acceptable range.
