Hi everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA–I was on vacation in Chicago last weekend, and got yet another gum surgery this week (let’s hope third time’s a charm!) I haven’t been in the kitchen much after the procedure, but was able to whip up these simple, savory mashed sweet potatoes, and they were delicious! These would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner spread. :-)
With Thanksgiving seemingly right around the corner, menu planning and day-of preparation are in full swing. Every year, we attend our family friend’s house with 20 plus other people. The day is complete with mass amounts of food, from delicious appetizers to various side dishes to giant gravy boats to three, yes three, turkeys. We obviously have to have a smoked turkey!
The sweet potato-pecan casserole is one of my favorite dishes every year (I still need to figure out who brings this dish). So, I decided to try replicating the casserole. Although my dish didn’t quite rank with the one on Thanksgiving, it held its own and was still delicious.
Note: If you want your casserole to have that bright orange color, use yams, which are often used in ‘sweet potato’ casseroles.
