Thanksgiving Recipe Makeover: How to Cut Calories at Thanksgiving Dinner
4. Sweet Potato Casserole
Calories Saved: 403
Sweet potatoes need not taste like dessert. If you didn’t know better, it would be easy to mistake the classic marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole for a dessert instead of a side dish. So we cut the butter and sugar and use evaporated milk for creaminess and crushed pineapple (with just 2 tablespoons of brown sugar) for a mellow touch of sweetness. Plus we skip the marshmallows and top it with meringue. The result: we cut more than 400 calories and 15 grams of fat per serving.
