Absolutely the BEST sweet potato casserole! The flavor of amaretto enhances the dish. A must for any Thanksgiving gathering.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There aren't any spices so the flavor of the amaretto is noticeable but not overpowering in this easy sweet potato casserole. We loved the pairing of amaretto with the naturally sweet potatoes. This holiday casserole is creamy and a traditional sweet potato casserole with a twist. When tasting this, if you don't know about the amaretto you can't put your figure on what's different. Marshmallows on top are the perfect touch. They're crunchy outside and gooey inside. This will be delicious alongside Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
