Yia Yia’s Sweet Potato Casserole

AKA Goodness! I was introduced to this recipe 8 years ago and it is so darn good I can’t stand it! The sweet goodness and crispy topping make this a dish that is not for the faint at heart. It is not diet friendly either but hey, it’s only twice a year right? Hope y’all enjoy this as much as my family does.
