This recipe was different. I baked it in a casserole like the others; however, my family was not crazy about it and told me they didn't mind if I didn't fix it again. It was a little too time consuming for the neutral outcome. I will probably skip this one.

I cut this in half to try, even the egg but it needs at least the whole egg for moisture. I also did it in a casserole and topped it with the extra pecans and we all liked it a lot. I will definitely make it again, probably for a veggie dish for Seder next year as the sweet was nice with the brisket I served, and I will also pass it along to friends and family as I think the younger children will like it as well. It is hard to find vegetable dishes that are different and tasty and this certainly fits that bill. Thanks SL
