This recipe belongs to my ex-husband's aunt (Aunt Marion). It was my favorite dish she prepared for every Christmas and Easter dinner. It wasn't right if this dish was missing from the meal! The Jack Daniel's Whiskey gives the casserole a nice taste but the alcohol cooks out it. I don't even like sweet potatoes but I love this dish! I've met a lot of people who said the same thing! I'm sure it will be your favorite way to eat sweet potatoes too!
