  • I use my Longaberger pottery, 3 Qt (13x9x2) baking dish for this casserole. I increase the ingredients by 50% (half again) and make a third layer. I have a family of 6 and some of them often ask for seconds of this delicious casserole.
  • In a hurry? For a quick dish with reduced preparation time, use canned sweet potatoes and save time cooking and peeling the potatoes.
