Sweet Potato Casserole

This sweet potato casserole recipe was shared with me many years ago by my high school friend Melissa. It has since become a long time favorite of my children and all of my nieces and nephews. Is it a pie filling in a pan? Maybe, we've never tried it any other way. We serve it on Thanksgiving at my home to 18 people. I get it prepped on Wednesday and bake it off on at the end of the Turkey's time in the over. But we also serve it on Christmas Eve with ham and I halve the recipe for a special roasted chicken dinner anytime!
