Sweet Potatoe Casserole-A Holiday Tradition

Sweet Potatoe Casserole is a tasty tradition that we look forward to as the Holiday Season approaches. For as long as I can remember we always had the sweet potatoe casserole with the marshmallows on top. That was yummy of course but when a friend of mine shared this recipe with me I just couldn't resist making it! I love anything that involves Pecans. Mixed together with the Sweet Potatoes, Brown Sugar and other ingredients I knew it would be delicious. Just as I had hoped, everyone loved it!


Sweet Potatoes are Very Nutritious!

Sweet Potatoes are not only good but good for you. They are considered to be one of the most nutritious vegetables! Sweet Potatoes are:

  • rich in beta-carotene which converts to Vitamin A and is important for vision health and bone development
  • a good source of Vitamins C and B6.
  • high in antioxidants which lower your risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease
  • rich in Fiber which keeps your bowel healthy and helps to lower cholesterol
  • a source of manganese which helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels and optimal thyroid function
  • low in calories!

Sweet potatoes are Versatile

Sweet Potatoes can be baked, fried, broiled and microwaved! They can be sliced, diced and mashed. Check here for some great ways to cook Sweet Potatoes!

Remember, most of the nutrients are close to the skin so it is best if they are cooked while in the skin.

      This is an amazing Hub with an awesome recipe (and photo) for sweet potatoes. I am not sure if I can wait for Christmas to try this recipe. I'm thinking that my family will never again let me make a holiday meal without this dish. Thank you !

      Sounds like a good tradition, anyway! (And I always think an advantage of a casserole is that you can always save what's left and store it in the fridge for the next day.)
