Ruth Chris Sweet Potato Casserole




I love sweet potato fries I think they are fantastic, but sweet potato casserole or sweet potatoes with marshmallows ugh! I don’t’ like them at all! As a matter of fact I will only make them for my husband I am not eating them. I just can’t stand the smell or the flavors.

When I found this recipe I was intrigued. It looked interesting and my husband was all up for it. The recipe was super simple to make and it baked beautifully. What more could I ask for? Apparently more…

I decided I would give them a try. The crispy praline topping was really drawing me in. Better yet, the smell was to die for. Oh boy there was a reason for the smell. This recipe is fantastic. I wouldn’t change a thing. I never thought I would like it much better love it! This recipe is a keeper. My husband even suggested putting it in a deep dish pie crust! Hum now that’s an idea!
