Sweet Potato Casserole

2012 December 3

It may be a crime to all food bloggers but I must confession: I sincerely tried to get out of Thanksgiving this year.  Who wants to host?, you may think.  I’m not saying I was trying to get out of hosting the big day.  I was trying to get out of hosting Thanksgiving, eating Thanksgiving, acknowledging Thanksgiving.


The reasons for my desire to abandon all things I love (cooking, eating, family) are various and likely unimportant to you.  What you might care about, however, is the fact that in the end, I was unsuccessful at my attempt to wallow in a nice hearty chili instead of a turkey meal and I ended up cooking, eating, and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

This sweet potato casserole is a super lightened up version of what you might be used to.  It truly is only subtly sweet, not sickeningly so, and has no fat added.  Not only is it  a color addition to the Thanksgiving plate that can be so often an array of monotone browns and tans, but it is a delicious addition, too.

    Just what I need for next year’s Thanksgiving. The one we had this year was way too sweet and definitely not very healthy. Thank you!!

    Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite parts of the holiday season.
