Tasting attributes: Grape Nectar makes this dish light and comforting - enhancing, but not overpowering, the flavor of yummy sweet potatoes
It can be pretty tough to please your relatives, especially at Thanksgiving when people come from all over for a highly anticipated meal. In addition to meal prepping weeks before the holiday and slaving away in the kitchen on the day itself, satisfying everyone's taste buds and diets is the most challenging part. So if you or any of your Thanksgiving patriots are vegan, lactose-intolerant, or gluten-free, fear not because this Sweet Potato Sasserole satisfies all of those restrictions and more.
Traditionally, this dish is found with toasted marshmallows melted over mashed sweet potatoes. Skip the candy and use Bored-O Blanc instead! Grape Nectar makes this dish sweet enough especially when combined with a simple mix of cinnamon, pecans, and cranberries. Plus, Grape Nectar’s refined flavor is better than anything you’ll ever get from chemically induced ooey-gooey marshmallows.
Something we love about this sweet potato casserole is its versatility. It can be a fantastic side dish for your Thanksgiving spread, or a wonderfully hearty dessert if homemade pies aren't doing the trick. Not only that, but we guarantee this casserole will be the easiest thing you’ll be making for your holiday celebration. This is the ultimate care-free dish! Bored-O Blanc adds just enough sugar that men & women, boys & girls will be begging for seconds without having to worry about a stomach ache after their third helping. We are thankful for this Sweet Potato Sasserole this year keeping it pure and healthy with only real foods. Whether potato or potatoe, this grapey twist on sweet potato casserole will be the star of an unbeatable Thanksgiving meal and the ultimate #DinnerParty!
