This is the perfect side dish to serve with roasted meats. Pureed sweet potato and pears are mixed with evaporated milk, sugar, butter, spices and pecans, before being baked to perfection.
Thank you for posting this recipe! I couldn't locate my copy from last year. This dish is a treat! Sweet potatoes and pears make a wonderful combo and it's a nice change from the standard marshmallow topped casserole. Try it! - 27 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! This was a piece of cake to make. I tossed the potatoes in my stand mixer to whip them, added the sauce, added the other ingredients and the cooked pears, turned on medium high and we were all set. This was very easy to make, and very good to eat! My two year old loved it, as did my in-laws. We'll definitely have this one again. - 29 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a GREAT recipe. A little different from the standard "sweet potatoe casserole". Delicious! The pears really give this dish a wonderful flavor - I even used canned pears, and instead of OJ, I used some of the reserved liquid from the can of pears. So good! (If you must, you can even throw some marshmallows on top for those marshmallow loyalists!) - 18 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
