This dish is fabulous leftover. I have made it both ways with canned and baked sweet potatoes. You CANNOT tell the difference. I have made this recipe for decades for my family. One of their favorites at Thanksgiving.
***Tip: This dish can be made a day or two ahead and refrigerated. Take it out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before you need to bake it. This can be a big time saver when trying to prepare a holiday meal.
