Bump up .. I may run this thru Mastercook tonight, using that new Brown sugar/splenda blend for the brown sugar; and the splenda/sugar blend for the regular sugar (I don't always like baking with splenda only). Have to get that nutritional info off the box for it tho.

Please let us know what the new point values are once you run this through! I really love the sound of this but just can't get away with a 7 point side dish. Well, unless I make it my supper. :)

I changed the sugar to splenda ... and to figure the nutrition out correctly ... i listed it as 1/3 cup brown sugar, as the brown sugar blend has "half the calories, half the sugar, and half the carbohydrates of brown sugar."

 

If you make 10 servings instead of 8 - it comes out to 4.1 points. I'll make this and take a smaller helping!

Recipe review: WOW!

 

Everyone loved this. It was my FIRST time making a sweet potato dish (well, i do'nt consider it "making" the frozen Mrs. Pauls' sweet potatoes that you nuke with all that sickeningly sweet syrup! In fact, i never even at those!)

 

My brother in law can't eat nuts, so i omitted the pecans, which cut down on fat and calories, so i was able to have a larger size for the 4 points, after i figured it out in Master cook.

 

I added a splash of the Davinci Caramel syrup in here .. omg ... it was wonderful! It lended a nice flavor without being too sweet. I made it my modified way with the splenda and brown sugar splenda blend, etc.

 

My sister asked for the recipe! Two thumbs up!

We had this at Thanksgiving and I had several comments that it was the best sweet potato casserole they had ever had. My Mom informed me before dinner that she didn't like sweet potatoes, Hmmmmmm. . . . she had THREE helpings and said she loved it! Great recipe and no one knew it was calorie friendly!
