Sweet Potato Casserole


This is one of my favorite sweet potato recipes. As the weather starts to turn from Fall to Winter I start to crave a Sweet Potato Casserole. It’s a great time to make it too. They are in season and the grocery stores will sell them really cheap! It’s a great dish to bring along with you to a pot luck or party. To save time I’ve made it when I had time, put it in the fridge and then all I had to do was bake it!
