Sweet Potato Casserole

Recipe by Michelle Kwon

Thanksgiving season is wonderful for many reasons: fall weather, foliage, and, most importantly, FOOD! Since my all-time favorite thanksgiving dish is sweet potato casserole, I wanted to share a 6-step recipe, so you can enjoy thanksgiving all-year round! 

Sweet potato casserole is great to bring to a potluck, a housewarming party, or any larger group gathering. I personally like making a tray and keeping it in the fridge, so that I can microwave portions for myself throughout the week. For any people inexperienced in cooking, this recipe is great because it requires no stove and most of it is basic mixing, and then waiting around. Also, this recipe only has 6 steps. Could it get any easier?
