casserole

When making my holiday menu, I can’t forget the Sweet Potato Casserole! This traditional Thanksgiving food is a favorite that you can still make without loading it down with sugar. It’s still an absolutely delicious dish! No marshmallows needed.

I like to use Japanese Sweet Potatoes since they are sweeter than other varieties, but feel free to use your favorite type of sweet potato. The Japanese Sweet Potatoes have purple skin and a light, almost white interior. Hannah yams (also white flesh), jewel or garnet yams also work well in this recipe. You might want to mix a couple of  varieties if you want the sweet starchiness of the Japanese Sweet Potatoes but the orange color of the traditional varieties.
