My fave Thanksgiving dish: Sweet Potato Casserole

Wow, it’s already thanksgiving week?  Where is the year going?  In any case, one of my favorite things about this time of year is the food, and my favorite holiday casserole is this one!  It’s simple to make, not too sweet, and always a crowd favorite.  I wrote up an extensive step by step how to last year at Foodwhirl, so I’m not going to go through it all again — just go read it there : Dot’s Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe.

…perfect for Thanksgiving!  I don’t know if sweet potatoes are on your typical Holiday menu, but they always are on mine.  This is an easy and quite tasty dish, that is very kid friendly too.  My 5 year old loves it.

I actually made 2 different versions of this dish this weekend… once for dinner at a friend’s house, and again for The Boy’s class Thanksgiving lunch at school. (For the kids, I decided to top with marshmallows instead– also tasty, but not as good as the crumbly nut topping).
