Sweet Potato Pie Casserole

Once you taste this simple delicious sweet potato pie casserole, you won't ever go back to the marshmallow topped variety! I bake the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet in the oven for 1-2 hours or until softened but feel free to cook them in the microwave or boil them in a saucepan. This can be prepared a day or two ahead of time and refrigerated, just add about 10 extra minutes to baking time. This is on my table every Thanksgiving!
