HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE

Do you call it Sweet Potato Casserole or Sweet Potato Pie?  It’s like poh-tay-toh or poh-tah-toh in my book.  🙂

Thanksgiving is officially NEXT week.  Can you believe it? NEXT week!?   I’ve never roasted a turkey, therefore I have no tips for you there.  So, I decided that this week I’m going to focus on three different ways to serve sweet potatoes with your Thanksgiving meal.

This ever-so-popular Sweet Potato Casserole being the first. There are many variations of serving sweet potatoes.  This is probably one of the favorites of American households, and seems more like a dessert to me than a side dish.  But, it never fails to pop up on the dinner table right next to that turkey.  Ben was telling me this weekend that he never liked sweet potatoes until he had them this way.  He said it was life changing for him.  He was 10.
