FOOD FRIDAY - Sweet Potato Casserole
I've got a great recipe for you today to make on Thanksgiving Day.
In my family, it wouldn't by Thanksgiving without a Sweet Potato Casserole.
Since I won't be making this until next week, I don't have any pictures to share with you.
I'm posting it today in case you want to make it next week for your dinner.
It is soooo good!
SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
4 LBS sweet potatoes
Cook sweet potatoes. Drain and mash with mixer and add the following ingredients:
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix together and put in baking dish.
Mix the following ingredients for topping:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Spoon topping on and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
I tell you it is so good, I could almost eat the whole thing. Now you know why I gain weight during the holidays. But, I will try to leave some for everyone else. My kids didn't like the idea of a sweet potato casserole until one time they helped me make it. When they saw all the good stuff going into it, they tried it, and they love it as much as I do.
Another good recipe for Thanksgiving Day is pecan pie muffins. Go here for that recipe.
