I was wondering if I whisk the eggs into the milk and then just pour over everything?

I was a little skeptical of this one, since the sweet potatoes were not cooked first. I sliced them very thin with my mandoline, and ended up baking it for 5 extra minutes (as the center was not brown at 30 minutes). I tested the sweet potatoes right after taking it out of the oven, and they seemed a little too firm, but after cooling for a bit they were fine. Two grown-ups and two kids (including a vegetable-avoider) all enjoyed and asked for seconds. Will definitely make again!

Good evening….I really enjoyed this recipe…made slight change based on what I had on hand…..used lowfat milk and parmesan cheese. I will make this again just as I made it. Thank you!
