#Honey #BrownSugar #SweetPotatoesMy lovely Mom is a true Southern Belle, raised as a child in a small town named Trenton, Tennessee. As you may have already gathered by now, that lovely traditional Sweet Potato Casserole is a Southern tradition that has been making its way to our Holiday Dinner table since before I can remember.

Sweet Potato Casserole usually is heavily laden in a thick, super-rich sticky sauce with tons of colorful prepackaged marshmallows; I’m not going to lie. The kid in me adored it. The adult? Not so much. I have, to be honest, I physically can not handle that much sugar in a month, let alone in a Holiday Meal anymore. These days I tend to look for a more natural healthy balance when enjoying my Holiday Dinner with friends and family.

Sweet Potatoes are naturally sweet and delicious. They need very little enhancement. You can rest assured you won’t miss all that sugar and marshmallows after trying my healthy and delicious alternative recipe to “Sweet Potato Casserole” below.
