Let's begin with this: I hate sweet potatoes. I had only ever eaten them one time willingly when my Aunt Lisa had made her casserole. Then last Thanksgiving, I watched my friend Jaime make hers and she told me that I had to try it. I did and I fell in love. This will be made for years and years to come :) I omitted the nuts from the struesel topping because we are unsure if Matthew has a nut allergy or not.

Sweet potato casserole sure is sweet, but you can't deny the it's nothing without the Perfect Roast Turkey on the Thanksgiving table. Best Ever Sweet Potato Casserole with Apples from One Creative Mommy is a different take on classic sweet potato casserole and definitely more autumnal!
