I love sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving! This fresh sweet potato casserole is a new and improved take on my previous sweet potato casserole, that was based on the one from Ruth’s Chris. This new and improved recipe, while inspired by my previous one, throws everything out the window and starts from scratch. It is the perfect balance of sweet and savory. It quite possibly is one of the best side dishes that I have ever made. You definitely need to add this Sweet Potato Casserole to your Thanksgiving table!
A couple of weeks ago, I visited New Orleans. While visiting New Orleans, I enjoyed all of the fabulous food and drinks that I could. I had everything from beignets to po-boys. However, my favorite treat was the Praline. It was sweet, nutty with a hint of caramel. They are freaking delicious! So as soon as I got home, I had to find a recipe to recreate these delicious treats. Of all of the recipes that we tried, this recipe created the most authentic tasting pralines.
