Yellow Sweet Potato Casserole

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

Becoming a tradition for Thanksgiving. I use the yellow sweet potatoes and not the orange ones. I find that the orange ones are too dense and wet and the yellow ones are more fluffy like regular potatoes. This is a very sweet casserole - almost like a dessert!
