Sweet Potato Casserole

Wendy Pitts


This side dish has become a Thanksgiving favorite. Even family members that aren't fond of sweet potatoes go back for seconds of this casserole. This dish can be assembled the night before and refrigerated until ready to cook. I like to remove from the fridge 15 or 20 minutes before putting in the oven.
