This Thanksgiving, the BF and I are going to his grandma’s house for dinner. Later in the day, we will spend time with my parents. My mom isn’t making a full Thanksgiving dinner. She will be serving hors d’oeuvres. This means I won’t be cooking any Thanksgiving dishes.
I was sad about this until I realized I could just make all the Thanksgiving dishes I wanted on other days! So over the weekend I made Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole, which I served with a store-bought roasted chicken, mixed green salad and mulled wine. It was a Faux Thanksgiving!
This sweet potato casserole is the best I have ever had. I usually don’t love sweet potato casserole because it’s so sweet you can barely taste the sweet potatoes. This recipe is not too sweet, but still has the nice subtle sweet crunchy topping. Perfection!
