For many years, I never really was a Sweet Potato Casserole fan until I found and tried this recipe and immediately fell in love. It is awesomeness in a casserole dish!
Prior to finding the recipe, I relied on the ever popular candied sweet potatoes, minus the marshmallows. Gasp! Yes, no marshmallows for me, it was just too sweet.
To change things up, give this recipe a try for your next holiday gathering. Nah, don't wait, you really don't need a reason, just try it and you'll be hooked.
