At every major holiday, we always have sweet potato casserole.

It used to be only for Thanksgiving did we enjoy this special treat, but after I found this recipe on Group Recipes, I can’t get away without making it whenever we get together. The first time I brought this dish, of course to Thanksgiving, it was gone in a matter of what seemed like seconds.

Then, when we started planning Christmas dinner, to which we all bring a dish to pass, they told me I HAD to make this again. Okay then! It was super simple to throw together and the ingredients were cheap…most of which I already had on hand in my kitchen.

The next time I made it I learned my lesson though, I made a double batch! Even the kids in the family who barely eat a dinner roll at family dinners will take a helping of this. Sometimes I will make it at home too for a special treat in the middle of the week!

I always cook this dish in the fall when sweet potatoes are in season and can usually find at a good price. This is a wonderful dish to serve with your Thanksgiving dinner.
