SWEETS! Potato Casserole

Sweet Potatoes, Yams…whatever you call them, for most kids the unassuming orange fleshed spuds are portrayed as a mortal enemy of the tastebuds—pushed silently to the side of the plate and in some cases served on the sly to the patiently waiting furry family member under the table.

But, when prepared properly, root vegetable aficionados and picky eaters alike are quickly surprised by the power and depth of taste the unassuming sweet potato possesses. Our SWEETS! Potato Casserole is no exception. Smooth, creamy (and yes sweet) with a crunchy topping (thanks to the SWEETS! Sweet Potato Kettle Chips) this casserole could do double duty as a dinner side AND dessert.

Serve with ice cream on the side. We won’t judge.

  3. After sweet potatoes are cooled, mash potatoes until smooth.
