I realize there are a million recipes out there for Sweet Potato Casserole, but this is my go to recipe...BEWARE it is very rich (1 lb. butter, total) and very addicting...almost a dessert in itself....recipe was given to me by a dear friend over 20 years ago and it has been a family favorite and a tradition on my Thanksgiving table ever since....so good!! Leftovers freeze well also!! Can be made a day ahead of time and put in the frig to be baked on the day you wish to serve. This recipe can easily be divided if you are not serving a very big crowd (adjust pan size accordingly).
