Betty Lou’s Sweet Potato Casserole

13 Dec

I first had this casserole at one of my husband’s family gatherings. His great aunt, Betty Lou made it. I loved it, and had to get the recipe! I have made this for the last 2 years at Thanksgiving, and everyone loves it. The sweet potatoes are sweetened up even more with Splenda, and they are topped with a delicious sweet crumb topping. It is easy to make. I have used canned sweet potatoes in this recipe, but I prefer to bake the sweet potatoes. If you bake them, let them cool for just a few minutes. The potato peel is really easy to remove. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do 🙂
