What Goes Into This Sweet Potato Casserole?
Really simple ingredients but the results are spectacular for a special meal like a Thanksgiving dinner. Personally, the pecan topping takes this to the ultimate for me. We love making it often even for other meals than the holidays as it easy and perfect for a Sunday supper or when company are over.
