Let’s talk Thanksgiving – if there is one thing I have never understood, it’s having TWO potato dishes – mashed potatoes AND a sweet potato casserole. I get it if you are having 30 people over for Thanksgiving…yeah, you are going to need a lot of dishes and a lot of food. But for a smaller get together, I feel like a person should only have to worry about 1 potato dish and leave room for the other good stuff – stuffing, rolls, veggie sides…and DESSERT.
If you want both, I think a sweet potato pie is the way to go! We have the same idea as a pumpkin pie going here – but instead we use real sweet potatoes! Doesn’t that make you feel great about yourself? And pssst – I really think this sweet potato pie is better than pumpkin pie!
