While my most recent Thanksgiving celebrations have been homebound, I used to regularly travel for the year’s best hearty-food holiday. Since I’ve never shown up empty-handed to this feast, that meant I needed to cook a delicious dish that would be easily transportable and satisfy a hungry crowd.

Not only is this sweet potato dish a scrumptious marriage of salty, sweet and a little spicy, but it can be assembled one day ahead of time. It pairs perfectly with any roasted meats and vegetables, but especially well with a Thanksgiving turkey and all the traditional fixings.

Simply boil your chopped sweet potatoes in a large pot, and then whip them into a heap of fluffy, creamy goodness. All you need for the perfect whipped potatoes is evaporated milk, brown sugar, butter, salt and some essential fall spices. My favorite combination with sweet potatoes is McCormick cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of cayenne pepper for a kick of zesty flavor. Plus, you can’t forget the pure vanilla extract for fabulous fragrance!

Want the secret to the perfect finishing touch? Smooth your soft sweet potato mash into a large baking dish, then top with a crumbly, buttery brown sugar-pecan streusel. It makes the most gorgeously golden, crisp topping that requires hardly any effort. No marshmallows needed!

Whether you’re baking this sweet potato side for the holidays, or a special weeknight dinner in, I guarantee you will love it.
