Classic Sweet Potato Casserole: Lightened Up Thanksgiving Side Dish

My friend, Laura, from New York asked me the other day about my Thanksgiving menu. I told her that it’s pretty traditional including our Classic Sweet Potato Casserole. She asked if there were marshmallows on top, and I laughed because this recipe doesn’t need any marshmallows. My sister, Julie, makes this Classic Sweet Potato Casserole every year on Thanksgiving. Most every year, she has to make two just so we are sure to have leftovers. What I love about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time, and it freezes beautifully. Take it out the day before Thanksgiving and thaw it in the refrigerator. I photographed this recipe as it was thawing, and when I posted it on Facebook everyone commented how lovely it was. I spent some time lightening her recipe using just egg whites, low-fat condensed milk and reducing the sugar, and you can’t tell any flavor difference. ┬áTrust me on this one-it’s divine. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and thank you for your continued support!
