Shirley's Sweet Potato Casserole

Bryson Hatfield


My uncle's wife, Shirley, won our hearts with this recipe since she married into our family in 1972. We always ask for this special dish at Christmas. I was lucky enought to "steal" the recipe a couple of years ago. We have always enjoyed this recipe.
