recipe roulette.... grandmommy's sweet potato casserole

 
with thanksgiving coming up I thought I would share with you my grandmother's famous sweet potato casserole.. it was so popular at thanksgiving she took to showing up with the recipe already written out because she knew she would be asked by someone for the recipe!
 

to me it's the symbol of thanksgiving.. i could not imagine a holiday without this dish.. and i didn't use to like sweet potatoes but have alwaysssssssss loved this dish!!


the origin of the recipe is a mystery.. my grandma has always made it and that's that.. ha


the crunchy topping is to die for.. now warning there is NOTHING light, less fat or low sugar about this recipe.. it's straight up indulgent and pretty much that's why it only gets made once a year.. 


but it's amazing.. try it this year you will not be disappointed.. 


and here is the recipe in grandmommy's own hand..




and if it's hard to read here it is typed out..
