Today, I want to share the Sweet Potato Casserole recipe from the adult day care menu. It is actually a combination of recipes, and may not be the one that I have prepared in past years. We prefer sweet potatoes just baked simply, whole or in wedges, with a little olive oil.
SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
3 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (I used canned to save time).
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 can (8 1/4 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained
- Add orange juice and melted butter to sweet potatoes in mixing bowl; beat until well-blended. Stir in pineapple. Pour into oblong baking dish sprayed with olive oil. Add Topping (recipe below). Bake in 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes, or until browned and bubbly. Serves 6.
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- Mix brown sugar, flour, and nuts together; add butter and blend. Sprinkle over sweet potatoes in baking dish. If you wish, you could add a little cinnamon to the Topping mixture. I didn't but the flavor would be good with the sweet potatoes.
The recipe that I use for Cranberry Relish comes straight from Betty Crocker.
4 cups cranberries
1 navel orange
2 cups sugar
- Chop cranberries and orange in food chopper; stir in sugar; refrigerate three hours before serving.
So, now I'm REALLY in the mood for Thanksgiving!:-) There will undoubtedly be some more cooking around here, plus the appearance of a turkey or two.:-)
Oh, I guess I need to review that cake recipe for some of you who have not been following very long. That will come in the next post!
I send along wishes for a good day to each of you.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
