Sweet Potato Casserole from BBetts for Thanksgiving

Al Smith


Bbetts was named for her mother Betsy and became Baby Betsy shortened to Bbetts. I have known her for 30 years since she was a junior in HS. She is the sweetest person I know. One Thanksgiving she brought this dish to my home.
It is the only recipe we use ever since.
