Sweet Potato Casserole

This dish is my absolute favorite dish at Thanksgiving.  Or any Holiday for that matter. I'm not really sure why I haven't posted it before, but I am now.  This sweet potato casserole is so deliciously sweet that you could almost serve it as a dessert.  You can get it ready the night before (minus the topping) and then just cook it the next day as directed - that is what I usually do!
