Let’s talk Thanksgiving.
You know what I LOVE about this holiday? It’s the perfect time to remind us to slowwwww.down. I know why it’s been strategically placed between Halloween and the hustle & bustle of Christmas. It’s the break we all need, and I’m THANKful for it for so many reasons. I love hearing of everyone’s traditions, what your thankful for, what’s on your family menus, and hearing how full everyone is after :).
One thing I’d like to share today is a recipe that is a staple for my southern family- our Sweet Potato Cassarole recipe. I know there’s several ways to make this dish, but if you’re looking for a sweeter version, this will have them coming back for seconds.
Sweet Potato Casserole
3 cups mashed sweet potatoes (peel, boil & drain)
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk (I use Blue Diamond Sweetened Vanilla Almond Milk to make it sweeter)
1/2 cup butter
Dash of salt
mix together and pour into a buttered dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 mins-1 hr.
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1 cup pecans ( we use chopped ones)
Put on top of cooked filling. Bake another 10 to 15 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.
I make mine in pie dishes but you can Double to make a whole pyrex.
I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we have. It
