Who doesn't love Sweet Potato Casserole?
No need to reinvent the wheel or insult Great Aunt Edna by butchering her recipe. Try these 3 ingredient swaps from US Fitness Trainer Megan to keep the calories down and the crowd full!
Boil sweet potatoes in water till fork is able to go through and you know they are tender; then mash them up and add just a tablespoon of butter (that’s it!) The real trick is the different ingredient alternatives I use that are healthier than the other major ingredients typically used which contain high sugar and fat… these are the three brands i use to still build that great flavor!
3. Use roasted pecans as a topping instead! Spread raw pecan halves or pieces on a baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes. Stir once halfway through. When the pecans are toasted, you will smell them! Roasting nuts brings out a deeper flavor and will add a healthy fat/protein to this dish!
