Lower Sugar Sweet Potato Casserole

Lower Sugar Sweet Potato Casserole
In This Article

Oftentimes, sweet potato casserole is so loaded with sugar and marshmallows it belongs on the dessert buffet. This version fits more comfortably on the main table. It contains only 3 tablespoons of brown sugar in the topping and no added sugar in the filling — because sweet potatoes are already naturally sweet. We roast the potatoes, along with some lower-carb butternut squash, for deeper, richer flavor.

Sweet potatoes make for a quintessential healthy side dish because they provide fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and manganese (which is important for metabolism and blood and bone health).

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
