This is my Grandma Louise's recipe for a sweet potato casserole. I swear it is the best thing I have ever eaten. She makes it every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. If you are bringing this to a party, it can easily be reheated by covering it with aluminum foil, placing it in an oven at 350°F, and heating it for about 20-30 minutes or until just bubbling. Enjoy! Note: Prep time does NOT include time needed to prepate fresh sweet potatoes/yams.

Been making this recipe for years. My daughter convinced me and so I nixed the sugar in the potato mixture as well as cutting the butter in half. Family of 10 children and 37 grandchildren like it better not so sweet. I have even omitted the eggs on occasion. Everywhere I take it is a big hit. None of the family, including extended family will eat any other and always asks for the recipe. They too seem to prefer it not so sweet. It is a great basic recipe

I probably wouldn't put so much nutmeg and allspice in there next time. Maybe half of each amount said in recipe. Otherwise, very good!
