Sweet Potato Casserole + A Country Crock Thanksgiving Giveaway! (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

Thank you to Country Crock for sponsoring this post. Visit and tell us your favorite Thanksgiving veggie for extra entries into this giveaway. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective.

NOTE: This giveaway is now closed. Please check your email to see if you’re the winner! Thank you to all who entered.

For some families, it seems Thanksgiving can become a time of quarrel. Whose house will we go to? What will be on the menu? Who will carve the turkey?

This year, I don’t want you to have to choose. I want you to have the best possible holiday, and I think this recipe will make that very simple.

Have you ever heard this saying? “Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zuchhini bread, and pumpkin pie.” Jim Davis had some real merit with this saying. Why not have vegetables for dessert, or, if you’re daring,serve dessert as your vegetables. With Country Crock, it’s easy to transform a vegetable side dish into a healthy, delicious, and dessert-like treat.

This recipe serves as a vegetable side dish, as well as a sweet dessert. I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s made with sweet potatoes, Original Country Crock, brown sugar, and all of the sweet spices of fall. I included apples and marshmallows as well, offering you even more sweetness to add to your sweet potato vegetable.

To make your Thanksgiving even better, Country Crock is offering one lucky CAKEfyi reader this fantastic Thanksgiving kit to cook and bake your favorites and to spruce up your table. One winner will receive these cute Harvest Pumpkin Tiny Taper Holders from Williams-Sonoma and Sur La Table’s Italian Scalloped Bakers and Wire Baker Racks.

Sweet Potato Casserole

6-8 C Water

4 Large Sweet Potatos, cut into cubes (3 1/2 Cups)

1/4 C Original Country Crock

1/2 C Brown Sugar

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice

Dash of Nutmeg

1 Apple, thinly sliced

1/2 C Mini Marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Add sweet potatoes, cover, and cook for 10 minutes until tender.

Once cooked, drain potatoes well and pour into heat-safe bowl, preferably that of a stand mixer. Turn mixer on low and mash potatoes. Add Country Crock, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg and continuing mashing.

Once creamy, spread mixture into baking dish. Press apple slices into the mixture and sprinkle with more brown sugar, if desired. Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove dish from oven, sprinkle with marshmallows, then return to oven. Broil for 1-2 minutes–marshmallows will brown quickly!
