Sweet potatoes and Thanksgiving go hand in hand. I love sweet potatoes any time of year, but at Thanksgiving they seem to taste better, or maybe they’re just more special. As much as I love sweet potatoes though I’ve never been crazy about the sweet potato casserole that always shows up on the buffet table. It’s overly sweet, and doesn’t tastes much like real sweet potatoes. If you feel the same way then you’ll love this recipe. It’s very simple to make so it’s easy to throw this together while all the other preparations are going on, yet it’s an elegant dish to serve at the table. It has all of the quintessential casserole ingredients, but they’re used in a different way. Roasting the sweet potatoes brings out their natural earthy sweetness – they just taste like a fall day. After roasting, the potatoes are simply tossed with a little butter, brown sugar, and pecans – easy, elegant, and delicious – exactly how I love sweet potatoes. This really is a perfect Thanksgiving side dish, but don’t reserve it for the holiday only. It’s also a quick and easy side dish for any meal.
