Sweet Potato Casserole for Easter

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


I'm a potato girl through and through. I eat them for several meals a week, but in my quest to serve my family a few healthier options at home, this past year I've been reducing our white potato servings and have been cooking more with sweet potatoes instead. Don't get me wrong, we still have russets at least once a week, but the sweet potatoes are finding their way onto our plates more often. I thought about doing mashed potatoes for Easter dinner this year, but changed my mind when I saw this simple Sweet Potato Casserole on Golden Blossom Honey. 


Sweet Potato Casserole


Did you know that sweet potatoes are low in calories and high in fiber, so they are a great food to consume if you are trying to lose weight? I usually have a craving for something sweet after dinner, but have noticed that when I have sweet potatoes, I usually don't reach for a dessert after my meal. With Easter right around the corner, those sweets are going to be calling my name, but I'm hopeful that I can curb those cravings with an extra helping of this casserole! It's filling and delicious, and even if you aren't trying to slim your waistline, this dish makes for a yummy addition to your Easter table!


Ingredients
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
4 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/8-inch rounds

  1. What a smart idea to add something sweet to the table that is so good for you. These do look better than mashed potatoes, and they're pretty (important for holiday meals) too. :)

    1. We don't want to be the fat Americans in Europe, so it's crunch time on sticking with healthy eats through July now :P

  2. You did put vegeta in it instead of chicken broth, right? :) That is how I bake me potatoes, drenched in a half a cup of hot water with a teaspoon of vegeta and oil underneath it.
    Lovely combo of baby blue and orange, deary.
    Sweet potatoes are like ten times more expensive than the regular ones and hard to find here, so I've never tried them.

    1. No, but I will next time. I don't swap out ingredients when it's not my own recipe so the photos always reflect what the finished dish will look like. If I do change them, I make sure to state it in the description.

      Sweet potatoes are much more expensive than the white ones here too. Like $1 a pound for sweet potatoes. I can get a 10 pound bag for $3 for the white variety, so I feel your pain on the cost of the sweets.

  11. Sweet potatoes are a lovely alternative for potatoes, I think this is a must try, I usually use them for mashed sweet potatoes and this would be a nice change.
