The best sweet potato casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole


Over the past few years, Sweet Potato Casserole has become my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I really was not a fan of sweet potatoes, until I tried THIS dish! It’s true! This particular Sweet Potato Casserole Dish was made by my sister, which came from the Cooking Light Magazine, and it completely won me over! So, if you think you aren’t a fan of sweet potatoes, at least try this dish and see what you think.

I’d love to hear what other Thanksgiving dishes you serve at y0ur table? This Sweet Potato Casserole recipe is now a staple at our Thanksgiving table. We had a pre-mini Thanksgiving meal yesterday with the Company Chicken Casserole and this Sweet Potato Casserole. Hubby actually made most of this – can you believe it? It was a first for him, and he was quite proud of himself!
