Christopher L’s Sweet Potato Casserole modified from my Mom
Why I Love This Recipe
My Mom would bake this for Thanksgiving every year and then she would cook this for other special occasions. Below there are the pure substances there are homogeneous mixtures and there are heterogeneous mixtures. Mixing the toppings together is a physical change. Melting the butter to put on the sweet potato is a physical change. One chemical change is that it turns brown but does not burn. Lastly, my last chemical reaction is that the Sweet Potato Casserole smelled sweet like a sugary caramel.
