Southern Sweet Potato Casserole – I have always loved Thanksgiving and that might be because it’s a holiday that revolves around all my favorite foods (and, ya know, thankfulness and family and all that). Warm spices, root veggies, and plenty of butter– what more could I want? While I think the magic of the Thanksgiving dinner plate is the combination of different flavors, I cannot deny my love for sweet potato casserole. It’s a side you rarely see the rest of the year, but come Turkey Day, it’s an absolute must. And this is my go-to recipe for it.

4 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 cup brown sugar
⅓ cup half and half
⅓ cup butter, softened
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 cup brown sugar
⅓ cup flour
