My sweet potato casserole is a little different, and topped a praline topping instead of marshmallows. It is always a hit.

Sweet potato casserole is my favorite Thanksgiving dish.

My favorite recipe involves peeling the sweet potatoes and slicing them thinly.  Then you saute' in butter until the edges are translucent.  At this point you add brown sugar until it melts...the results is tender yet firm pieces of sweet potatoes...this recipe has converted many a non-sweet potato lovers.
