Notes

I call this recipe "Middle of the Road" because there are sooo many variations of Sweet Potato Casserole are out there- Many are more like a dessert (with caramel or mashmallows) and others are a little too straight-forward for me (with simply milk or salt)...For me, This casserole is a perfect "middle of the road"!
