Sweet potato casserole is a side dish consisting of vegetables. Regardless of that, the dish tastes sweet, so it can be served as a dessert. At the same time, it can become a great addition to the roasted chicken, baked ham or turkey. In the USA, sweet potato casserole is traditionally cooked for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Stages of cooking

  1. If you use canned sweet potatoes, you don’t have to cook them, because they are already cooked. Just do not forget to drain them before cooking. If you prefer cooking the product on your own, then start with scrubbing and baking the vegetable. Pike them with a knife and bake with the skins at 180 degrees for about 1 hour
