Bacon and Brown Sugar Topped Sweet Potato Bake

“This is not your typical sweet potato casserole that you have during the holidays, it's more savory than sweet. The potatoes are whipped and creamy with just enough spices to keep it from being bland. I really love the hint of garlic, it's a nice surprise. The topping really makes this dish special. The brown sugar crystalizes on the bacon while baking and gives the topping a nice crunch.” - Debbie

Rosie's Sweet Potatoes

Top with the delicious crunchy topping and you have a green bean casserole no one will pass up.” - Janet

Cauliflower, Broccoli Casserole

“I just made this and it was the best, I left out the margarine and added 1 cup of water from the steamed vegetables and I thought it was sooooo good. I used some of the extra sauce over chicken breast in their own casserole and that was good also, thanks I will be making this often as I love both vegetables and buy them often.” - bjvs
