One of the most popular sides from Boston Market is waiting to be served on your table. Our newest copycat recipe, Sweet Potato Casserole, is one for your recipe book! Rich sweet potatoes covered in marshmallow and brown sugar streusel topping are a side dish to remember.
When Chad and I were first dating, most weekends, we would pick up a movie and head to Boston Market. We would order our favorite meatloaf and sides for dinner and take it to go. There is nothing quite like Boston Market meatloaf and sweet potato casserole, well except their corn bread. That is pretty fabulous too.
On our way back to Chad's apartment we would stop and pick up a pint of ice cream. Then we would sit down and enjoy our dinner while we watched The X-Files. Do you remember that show? Oh we watched it every week. That was a great horror series!
These days it's more like Walking Dead. That is our favorite horror series now. But, in true form we sit down every week and enjoy that show. Is it just me or do you enjoy staying at home? We like going out every now and then but truth be told we are homebodies. Being at home just fits. Whether we are having game night, throwing parties or just cuddling up to a great movie, being at home is a good fit.
Growing up my parents never went out without us. I could probably count on one hand the number of times we had a babysitter. Perhaps watching my parents for the 42 years they were married, a few things rubbed off on me.
Whether its for Thanksgiving or a movie night this copycat Boston Market Sweet Potato Casserole is going to blow your mind. Rich mashed sweet potatoes with butter, cream, brown sugar and spices are topped with marshmallow and a scrumptious crisp brown sugar streusel. The ultimate side for any meal.
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
