A few years ago my Dad requested a sweet potato casserole for our Thanksgiving dinner. I made this recipe and instantly fell in love. I think him and I ate the most of it that day. Recently we were lucky to have been given a few sweet potatoes from my son's girlfriends parents so I made these. I forgot just how good this recipe is. The perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.
