SWEET POTATO SIDE DISH MAKEOVER

Sweet potatoes have been a part of our family’s Thanksgiving menu for as long as I can remember…and for all but a few of those years, I have refused to eat them! I don’t know why…I’ve just never been a fan. But about 5 years ago my sister-in-law Denise started bringing a sweet potato side dish to our Thanksgiving dinner that finally won me over! I’ve never asked her for the recipe but when I spied this recipe for a Sweet Potato Bake on the Marzetti KitchensSM website, I knew I had found something I might possibly like even better! Any recipe that includes Caramel Dip as one of the ingredients can’t be bad!
