Thanksgiving Recipe ~ Sweet Potato Casserole
Thanksgiving Recipe ~ How to make Sweet Potato Casserole This Thanksgiving recipe favorite in our house was found online some years ago. It has been made famous by the Grandview Lodge in North Carolina. It has become synonymous with autumn in our house. As far as Thanksgiving recipes go, this is the one must have ( aside from my Thanksgiving turkey) that our family always wants me to bake. It also happens to be one of the side dish casseroles that people will ask me to bring to their assorted holiday functions. It is truly that good. I’ve even had family tell me that they would forgo the mashed potato recipes and Thanksgiving gravy for this sweet potato casserole. It’s truly a Thanksgiving recipe favorite that your family will be asking for for years to come.This is a bit of a Thanksgiving recipe secret so shhhh! It’s simple and delicious and people will think you were slaving over the stove all day. If you are like me, you can even put it all together the night before ( to reduce the amount of kitchen time on Thanksgiving) and then just pop it in the oven for the last 45 minutes of your turkey baking time.
