Grown-Up Sweet Potato Casserole
This sweet potato "pie" gets a boost from applesauce.
Why This Recipe Works
For a Sweet Potato Casserole recipe with a little more depth than the “cream, brown sugar, marshmallow" approach, we used fresh sweet potatoes, not canned. Roasting the potatoes gave us the driest, most flavorful texture. To intensify the potatoes’ flavor even more, we covered the halved tops with butter and brown sugar and broiled them until browned.
