My momma was my best friend. She was a loving and wonderful woman, just as much as a pain in the butt as me, and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss her. She passed away when I was a senior in college, and one of the things I miss most about her was her wonderful comfort food. And everything she made was comfort food for me! Lots of good memories started around our dinner table! And for that, I am thankful.
This is our family sweet potato casserole recipe that we had EVERY Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. It’s the way sweet potatoes are supposed to be: no marshmellos! I love it. It’s simple, classic, and delicious. So, in honor of my mom, here is our FAVORITE Thanksgiving dish! Make sure you make it with love!
In a large bowl mix with blender:
-About 8 sweet potatoes, boiled & peeled
-1 cup milk
-1 and 1/2 sticks melted butter
-1 cup white sugar
Put in a 9×13 in glass baking dish.
-1/2 stick melted butter
-1 cup brown sugar
-3 tbsp flour
-1 cup chopped pecans
Mix in small bowl, sprinkle over top. I actually double this because I’m a fattie.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 mins
Thanks, Mom I love you.
