Creamy Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Pure comfort food. This dish is absolutely scrumptious and, although we like it as an every-day side dish, it’s pretty enough for the Thanksgiving table! Be sure not to compromise on the ingredients. We want full-fat cheese that we grate ourselves and full fat cream. Worried about the fat? Be sure to follow our “Healthy Weight Myths” series!! 😉

What You’ll Need 3 medium sweet potatoes 1 3/4 cups heavy cream 6 to 8 ounces aged cheese (we love the Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, but whatever you pick make sure it’s full-fat and very flavorful!) nutmeg unrefined sea salt (it’s a health food!

Put on the lid and heat on medium heat until butter is melted, then stir and put the lid back on. After a couple of minutes, stir again and use a fork to check […]
