Sweet Potatoes

My co-worker Dara made this for our Thanksgiving Potluck at work and I had to have the recipe because it was by far the best sweet potato casserole that I have ever had. My husband said this was the best part of the meal, even better than dessert. The recipe came from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Dara said she went to the restaurant and tried the sweet potatoes and liked them so much that she called them and asked for the recipe. I never thought about asking a restaurant for the recipe but I will keep that in mind next time I like something when eating out.
