Actually, my kids call this sweet potato cake… It tastes so amazing. So if you’re looking for a healthy casserole, THIS is not it. I could eat this every single night. And left overs are even better! And it compliments all meats. In fact, this is the sweet potato dish we eat on Thanksgiving… There is quite a few steps. And it takes an hour to be ready… But if you can ignore the amazing aroma, it is sooooo worth it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
