The Best Sweet Potato Casserole


I have a small confession.   I do not like sweet potatoes.  I have tried to like them but they just aren’t my thing.  My family loves them and Thanksgiving isn’t complete without a Sweet Potato Casserole.

Let me tell you why this is the best sweet potato casserole in town.  It turns a sweet potato hater into a lover.  I honestly couldn’t believe how incredible this casserole was.  And that I was actually eating sweet potatoes and loving it!  It is the perfect consistency and not too mushy and the combined flavors are incredible.  The topping was my favorite part.  A pecan brown sugar topping that gives it a little crunch and great texture.  This was the best.  My hubby ate half of the pan himself.  I know that if you make these, you will agree that they truly are the BEST!
