Sweet Potato Casserole

Written By: Chris - Dec• 10•13

It’s the Holidays and I wasn’t really thinking “light” when I prepared this dish.  Though the sweet potato is nutritious (high in vitamins A and C) and very tasty, not too many in my bunch care for them too much.  But I like them and I particularly think they need to be on my Thanksgiving menu.  I enjoy the sweet contrast along side of my green olives, pickles and salty gravy over mashed potatoes…  These little gems are traditionally a dish of pureed, sugary-sweet potatoes topped with a generous layer of mini marshmallows (in other words, an opportunity to eat dessert for dinner, so I don’t understand why my gang isn’t crazy for them too.)  I thought if I changed them up by adding a buttery cracker top, it might elevate this years sweet potatoes to a new level.  Well, some ate them and some didn’t – but these are GOOD!  Next time, I’ll be adding toasted pecans.

Combine the topping ingredients by melting the butter and brown sugar.  Add the crushed crackers and sprinkle over sweet potato mixture.  Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes.
