Southern-Style Sweet Potato Casserole

You won't have trouble getting your kids to eat these veggies. I made this Southern-Style Sweet Potato Casserole last week for my practice Thanksgiving dinner and let me tell you, it was the first side dish to disappear. My guests loved it because it tastes like a dessert (no wonder, with all the butter and sugar involved); and I loved it because it's was so simple to throw together!
