Grandma's Sweet Potato Dish

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 35 mins

An old family recipe, it's actually a casserole. This recipe was, however, created and named before the word "casserole" came into vogue. This holiday family favorite is as appealing as a sweet potato pie, but without the crust. I'm posting this here for my daughter, who just made this for our Thanksgiving dinner for her first time ever. (Thanks, Megan!)

Made this for dinner with roast chicken. This is a delicious fall dish that would be perfect for Thanksgiving. Could also be used as dessert.
