Mash the sweet potatoes with the margarine until smooth. Add the milk, vanilla, maple syrup, sea salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour into casserole dish. Next, mix the topping ingredients together until well-combined. Sprinkle topping mixture over the casserole and bake for approx. 50 minutes, checking it every so often. Serves 7-9.

    I was going to try to use this recipe but noticed the milk discrepancy also so "Googled" the title... Check out this link -- this recipe was "adapted" - the original had milk in it...

    Sound great! I'll probably use less Earth Balance, since I try to cook without added fats when possible, but this sound delish! - 11/15/10
