Easy Southern Sweet Potato Casserole

Our family triples this recipe to feed a crowd! This is always a hit. You can prepare this ahead of time (as we do) by making the filling and sealing it in a Ziploc bag. The filling can be stored in the fridge for up to two days. This makes it easy to prepare ahead of time, so that there is more time with family on Thanksgiving Day!
