Sweet Potato Casserole
This is not your mother's sweet potato casserole (and that's a good thing). This version is only lightly sweetened, tender rather than gloppy or mushy, and accented with a hint of ginger. It's still topped with browned, gooey marshmallows, though, because some traditions are worth sticking to.
Sweet potatoes are absolutely marvelous—they’re incredibly versatile, naturally sweet, loaded with nutrients and fiber, and low in calories. Really, what’s not to love? Here, they're simply sliced and cooked to make the perfect crust for a quiche.
