How To Eat Yams On Thanksgiving

I sit here in front of the computer on Tuesday night, and I must admit I'm quite tired. Trying to tackle some of those "to-do" items you know.

I wanted to post my personal Thanksgiving list for Wednesday, but I'm much too tired to write it tonight, because I want it to be a good list, not just a short bullet list. So I'm thinking I'll sit down tomorrow morning when my eyes aren't blurry and my head is clear, and I'll write it then.

Another thing I must do tomorrow is make Sweet Potato Casserole for our Thanksgiving dinner. We're having dinner at my aunt's house this year, and this is the only thing I have to contribute to the meal - yes, I have it easy this year.

I'm glad I get to bring this dish though, because it's my absolute favorite Thanksgiving side dish - I look forward to it all year long, and sometimes I even cheat and make it when it's not Thanksgiving! I thought I'd share the recipe here - you know, in case any of you are still looking for a side dish recipe.

Is it better than sweet potato pie? In my humble opinion - yes. No contest. It beats sweet potato pie hands down. So if you're looking for a way to get the yams in this year, this is your lucky day!

If you make it today, you have to tell me, because then we could quite possibly end up making it at the same time - how cool would that be?

Without further ado . . .

Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

1 large can sweet potato
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 c. brown sugar
¼ tsp. cinnamon
2 T. milk
2 T. orange juice
½ tsp. grated orange peel
2 T. margarine
½ c. walnuts
Mini marshmallows

Mash potatoes, add remaining ingredients except marshmallows. Pour into casserole dish, cover and bake at 350 F for 45-50 minutes. Add marshmallows to the last 10 minutes of baking. Serve warm.


Happy Thanksgiving cooking!

Sounds delicious! I LOVE sweet potatoes...but this year my "assignment" for Thanksgiving dinner is to bring a dessert...so maybe I'll have to try it next year!

I'm bringing sweet potato casserole to Thanksgiving dinner too! Except I already made mine. And the recipe is not nearly as fancy as yours. Just sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, vanilla, milk and eggs, all mixed together with a pecan/butter/brown sugar/flour mixture on top. It's my fave!
