Sweet Potato Casserole {365-18}

 “What is that?” you say.
I guess it’s obvious by the title of my post! 🙂
 See the pecans and crunchy goodness? My mouth waters as I look
at these pictures this morning.  I may have to eat some for breakfast!
 This is the Sweet Potato Casserole that my family fell
in love with at dinner last night! Wow!  
It is a wonderful recipe and I’m going to share it.
This, on the other hand is not that delicious.
I always leave something in the turkey.  Always.
Yep, the neck got cooked along with the stuffing.
I only realized the neck was still in there after it was stuffed
and roasting away in the oven.  Oops! 🙂
The turkey was delicious.  Mashed potatoes and homemade gravy
were delicious.  The sweet potato casserole was an absolute delight!
I have this one sweet potato recipe I always use, but could not find it!
I was in a panic, then I remembered  I have the internet and there was
probably a recipe or 2 online that was similar to the one I had.
Here is the recipe:
A sweet potato casserole recipe, made with mashed sweet potatoes and a crunchy pecan topping. Scroll down to see more sweet potato recipes.
