Superb Side: Sweet Potato Casserole

20 Nov

It’s almost Turkey Day!  Time to break out a recipe you can present at your table, or take along to a friend or family member’s house as a super sweet potato dish to go with the turkey.

Since I live out of town from the rest of my family, I always have the pleasure of celebrating with generous friends, with family sometimes visiting.  It’s a good excuse to party (and, of course, eat).  So spruce yourself up, slap together this side, and enjoy your holiday… let the feasting begin!

Dad comes to Malibu to celebrate seaside.

SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE (serves 8)
6 large sweet potatoes, cooked
1C dark brown sugar
4oz. butter
1/3C honey (the original recipe calls for Karo syrup, but honey is a good substitute)
2T lemon juice
1/4t salt
1/4t nutmeg

Peel and slice cooked sweet potatoes.  Arrange in baking dish, allowing for two layers.  Mix remaining ingredients together and spread half on first layer of potatoes and the rest on the second layer.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until nicely glazed.

Shopping for the feast with a friend

While it’s not an Italian holiday, I’ve never passed up an excuse to have fun.  Happy Thanksgiving and mangia!
