Thanksgiving may just be one of my favorite holidays ever, even if the only people I cook for are the kids, B, his father and myself. There is something about preparing all the food (enough to feed an army) for my family that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Even though Thanksgiving is a week away, I’ve already started to prepare. It doesn’t matter how many people you’re cooking for—you still need to prepare.
One of B’s absolute favorites is the typical sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and marshmallows on top. It’s not for me, though, so I set out to find a way to spice up the sweet potato casserole to something that is way more my style. A savory sweet potato casserole is exactly what I found.
I love it, but B still wants me to make the classic sweet potato casserole, which leaves me making an extra dish. I love having so many different options on Thanksgiving, but having all the different options means that I need to cut corners where I can. I love making everything from scratch as often as I can, but sometimes I need to take shortcuts to make sure it all gets done. My weekly Target run (okay twice weekly) left me with an option I didn’t previously have, thanks to the new frozen Archer Farms roasted sweet potatoes. Being able to steam these, mash them up, and then reheat them for just 20 minutes in the oven is going to save me a huge amount of time on my savory sweet potato casserole dish!
Ready to switch up your sweet potatoes this Thanksgiving? Here we go…
Preheat your oven to 375F. While the oven is preheating, steam 2 bags of Archer Farms roasted sweet potatoes.
In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. While the oil is heating, slice 3 medium-sized yellow onions. Once the skillet is hot, add the onions and 1 tablespoon sugar. Stir often as the onions caramelize.
When sweet potatoes are hot, transfer them to a medium-sized mixing bowl and add spices and whipping cream.
Once the onions are caramelized, mix them into the sweet potato mixture. Spread into your baking dish. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes. The Parmesan cheese on top should be nice and brown.
Making this gets me so excited for Thanksgiving! Not too much longer until we’ll get to enjoy this dish again!
