Sweet Potato Casserole

Welcome back to QCK!

This week is all about Quarter Cup Thanksgiving and how those of us with tiny kitchens can still host a successful Thanksgiving dinner.

My favorite Thanksgiving side dish is sweet potato casserole, I always look forward to it, but it’s so sugary and sweet that I really only have it once a year, and that’s fine with me.

My recipe for sweet potato casserole is super simple but extra delicious, some classics just don’t need to be messed with, and this is one.

Do you have your sweet potatoes with or without marshmallows? Marshmallows are a big no from me, but some people love them! Let me know in the comments.
