Sweet Sweet Potato Casserole

by Gail Absher Lemon

When we visited kin from down (NC) home, seems like sweet potatoes was everyones favorite. I live in the North now and still do a lot of Southern cooking. My husband is from Kentucky. I tried making a sweet potato dish one day and this is what I came up with. My family and a lot of kin from the south sure liked it. Seems like I have to increase the amounts every year. If there is left overs it goes home with the first one who calls for it.
