This sweet potato casserole recipe was submitted by Gail Absher Lemon of Michigan.
Gail stated, "When we visited kin from down (NC) home, seems like sweet potatoes was everyone's 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."
Hope you enjoy this classic and traditional casserole dish. During preparation, for this recipe I usually boil my sweet potatoes and let them cool a bit before mashing. I know other people who prefer to bake the potatoes first rather than boiling. It's up to you to decide whether to boil or bake the sweet potatoes first.
