I love sweet potatoes and loved the concepts for this casserole, but I wanted to make it a little healthier. I often like to mix butternut squash with sweet potatoes because I think they go well together. So I used 1 butternut squash and 2 medium sized sweet potatoes, baked in the oven until soft. I also eliminated the butter altogether, used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of the white, and added cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix. The mixture was a little runny, so I added a Tbsp or so of flour. I just sprinkled chopped walnuts on top instead of the streusel topping. Altogether, I think this made the recipe healthier, and I personally didn't miss the butter at all. One friend thought it was good but needed some more sweetness, but I thought it was sweet enough, and with the extra spices, it actually tasted a lot like sweet potato pie filling! Yum!
