My Addition to this special Holiday Guide is

Individual Sweet Potato Casseroles with Maple Syrup, Candied Pecans, and Marshmallow Meringue.

I have a confession, I love Sweet potatoes.  I order them all year round, I consider them a special treat from my favorite restaurants.

I decided to take all the different things I like with sweet potatoes and combine them into one totally awesome, yummy sweet potato dish.

Although there are several steps to this recipe,

it’s very easy and many of the steps you can do ahead of time.

The first step is to cook the sweet potatoes.

You can peel, cube and boil them or you can wash, prick and bake them 400 degrees F.  Either way is totally fine.

Cook them until they are very tender when pricked.

Cool completely.

TIP:  You can cook the sweet potatoes and store them in the fridge as early as two days ahead of time.

When you are ready to bake them, combine the insides of the sweet potatoes in a bowl
with the milk, butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Mix together slowly until blended.

Spoon the mixture into your individual casserole dishes or ramekins.
