Are you a Thanksgiving traditionalist?  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes or do you like to mix it up and try some new recipes?

I stick to the traditional turkey and mashed potatoes but always throw in two to three new recipes.  One year I even served a beet terrine which was a huge success.  I think it is safe to say everyone wants their turkey, stuffing, potatoes but then they want something new and healthy to enjoy alongside.  So why don’t you try my paleo molasses sweet potato casserole?

This recipe is perfect to serve alongside any of your holiday meals! Sweet potatoes are very complimentary to most savory meals and they can easily be paired up with any choice of meat or fish. The sweetness of this dish blends perfectly with more savory options.  A variation of the mashed sweet potatoes with flavors from cinnamon and walnuts is often served on Thanksgiving, but there is no reason not to enjoy it around the new year feasts.

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am thinking of making this for thanksgiving. Just wondering if I can replace the molasses and maple syrup with honey?

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    1. Sarah, Yes you can use honey as a substitute. It may have a bit of sweeter flavor, but that is not a bad thing in this dish.
